How often do you receive one or more presents that you never use or find it difficult to buy for that someone who has everything?
Alola can help stop the clutter and end the waste, by offering you the chance to give a gift that matters – one that supports the women and children of Timor-Leste. We also have the ideal Kris Kringle gift for teachers or work colleagues: Packs of Readers that will help children enhance their literary and enjoyment of stories.
Alola Australia in partnership with Fundasaun Alola, offer a range of Gift Certificates. Your gift will support the development programs of Fundasaun Alola in Timor-Leste, established in 2001 by Kirsty Sword Gusmão. Fundasaun Alola’s programs improve child and maternal health, create employment opportunities, promote human rights, strengthen community participation in economic and social development and enhance the status of women in Timor-Leste.

  • All certificates are available as an e-card. Just open the attachment you will receive via email and print it onto whichever paper of card you choose.
  • To order Christmas Gift Certificates you can pay using PayPal or you can download an order form here:  Alola Christmas gift certificates.Order form. 2016
  • The order process is automatic however once your order is received we then manually receipt and email or post your certificate to you. We aim to do that on the day we receive the order but occasionally there may be a slight delay.
  • If you decide to order your gift certificate to be shipped, we will send you a different looking certificate from the ones presented here. We prefer to use what we have already printed, so we can keep both our environmental & printing costs low: therefore making more funds available for Fundasaun Alola.
