The end of 2021 is approaching, and though it has been another challenging year for NTA, we are proud to have been able to continue to deliver our important program to the poor farmers of eastern Indonesia.
To round up this year, we have prepared the December 2021 newsletter to summarise our achievements for 2020-21.

NTA visits each project location twice a year with a joint monitoring team from Australia and Indonesia. The goal is to make sure the projects are all making good progress and inputs from the beneficiaries are received and acted upon in future planning of activities. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible for the Australian team to join the monitoring visit. The NTA-Indonesia (NTA-I) team therefore started the monitoring visit on their own, and proved to be highly committed and skilful.
We are excited to announce that NTA - Indonesia (NTA-I) has started their monitoring visit in Eastern Indonesia.
Traditional ikat weaving – empowering women is a critical part of lifting traditional communities from poverty. NTA has been working with women in Flores, Indonesia to improve the quality and marketing of traditional cloth to increase incomes. Last week 6 women from 3 community groups completed a workshop in the homestay of a trainer. They focused on enhancing the use of natural dyes, marketing and product diversification. To help us continue this important work with further training and equipment please donate to our Ikat appeal at https://www.givenow.com.au/ikat
Dear NTA supporter,
As the end of the financial year approaches, there is no better time to make a tax-deductible contribution to NTA: East Indonesia Aid. Each contribution helps NTA implement critical measures to protect vulnerable people, such as the young girl below, from the impacts of COVID-19 in extremely poor communities of eastern Indonesia.
This year we are focusing our efforts on helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The NTA and the people of Flores and West Timor will really appreciate your donation at this difficult time.

As always, we thank you for your continued and generous support.
