Pittwater Friends of Soibada is a community group which has joined Pittwater Council in signing a Friendship Agreement with the people of Soibada, a remote village community in Timor Leste (East Timor).

The purpose of this agreement is to provide a basis for the Pittwater Community to support and assist the people of Soibada to improve their daily lives.

Our vision is to forge a strong friendship between the two communities of Pittwater and Soibada; to help the people of Soibada increase their health, education and well-being; and to support projects in Soibada that will contribute to the community’s long term independence and sustainability.
