Doing so will also help your younger brothers and sisters learn in the future. Learning will enrich your life and expand your future opportunities. Japan

offers several programs and scholarship for Timorese people to go and learn in Japan. I hope some of you have a chance of participating in these programs to know much more about Japan, and to contribute economic and social development of Timor-Leste in the future.”
