Timor Aid publishes books in the Tetun language to contribute towards the development of literature, culture and educational resources in Timor-Leste.

• Istória Timór (Literature)
• Books on cultural research
• Educational books
• Literature books

Timor Aid aims to promote Tetun literacy,  the use of the Tetun language and raise awareness, particularly with young children. We believe it is important to preserve and show the world our identity and culture as Timorese people.

Timor Aid publications represent a key strategy to support Timorese writers and help build a strong and proud literary culture in Timor-Leste. Timor Aid also translates stories from other languages into Tetun which are available for purchase at the Dili office. A dictionary for children has also been published by Timor Aid in collaboration with Alola Foundation.

Some new books showcase the research of the Timor Aid Cultural team. These publications provide insights into  the tradition and cultural heritage of Timor-Leste and offer an opportunity to reflect on our past was we move forward on this journey towards peace and prosperity. 

Book Store

Timor Aid has a book store in our office in Rua de Nu Laran in Bairro dos Grilos, Dili, where you can purchase children’s books, cultural books and other books.
