Balibo Community Learning Center (CLC)

July 2012 – December 2014

Balibo Community Learning Center (CLC) is an information and community learning center, which provides opportunities for the local community to access information and professional trainings, thereby strengthening community capacity to contribute to and participate in their local development.

With support from the Balibo House Trust in Australia, Belun worked together with local community through the Balibo CLC in order to strengthen community capacity in literacy and professional skills through a range of classes, including: English classes for children and adults, computer classes, carpentry, and capacity building for the rural women’s group, with the objective to enhance the capacity of the women’s group to better manage the cooperative, particularly in local handcraft production and marketing.
