Educating The Future is an Australian not-for-profit charity operating at a grassroots level, to improve the access and quality of education in Timor-Leste (previously known as East Timor). During the Civil War in 1999, 95% of school infrastructure was destroyed and nearly all the teachers fled the country. Today, Timor-Leste's youth have been left unequipped, and unable to progress in an educational capacity. With 40% of the population under the age of 14, ETF has responded to the desperate need for infant education. ETF began as a product of youth entrepreneurship and is run by students who identify the importance of early stages of education. Since our registration in 2016, we have successfully supported the community in building a pre-school in Timor-Leste's Ermera District which currently supports 60 children that otherwise would not have had the opportunity to gain an education. We are working in collaboration with the Timorese Government to help them achieve their goal of giving all Timorese children access to education facilities. 

The night includes:

A three-course dinner, entirely created and catered by The Dinner Ladies, a long-term sponsor of ETF ( 

Complimentary beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks. 

Live and silent auction, as well as many raffle prizes to be won! 

Music will be played by The Know, a contemporary up-and-coming band who have sold out multiple venues around Sydney. Kambala's talented musicians will also be performing.  

Guest speaker, Tony Maniaty:

As a war correspondent in Timor during 1975, Tony saw first-hand the turmoil and conflict in the lead up to the Indonesian Invasion. Renowned for his public speaking, Tony self-proclaims his encounters with the ‘Balibo Five’, the Australian journalists who died during the Timorese conflict. His memorable and confronting journeys to Timor-Leste inspired him to write Shooting Balibo.
