Mary MacKillop Today has an in-country office and has responsibility for the governance of nine Edmund Rice pre-primary schools (TEKA’s) where 291 children are enrolled. ERFA’s partnership delivers training to teachers, parents and other members in the community to support delivery of the national Tetum literacy curriculum, numeracy and health education together with resources.
