My Story

I established Alola's breastfeeding program in 2003 as a young Mum with an infant at the breast. I hoped to raise awareness among East Timorese women of the enormous importance in terms of health benefits and bonding that exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life brings.

Women’s empowerment comes in many forms. There is giving her a voice and the self-belief that leads to political power. There is giving her an education which enables her to understand and contribute to the world and the human family. There is giving her the seeds of economic power in the form of a loan, a skill or an idea. And then there is the intense power which comes from the knowledge that her body alone can provide for all her baby’s nutritional and health needs for the first six months of life. That’s the power of breast-feeding! Happy World Breastfeeding Week. Thank you for helping us spread the word and the power this week by supporting Alola's MILK campaign. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
