We are a community-based group based in the City of Boroondara, Melbourne, Australia. We are part of a network of East Timor Friendship Groups providing a forum to coordinate support for the people of the Same region, East Timor, in rebuilding their communities.
In The Community
Friends of Same have undertaken a number of projects in the sub-district of Same
The major export commodity of East Timor is coffee, and the Government of the Democratic Republic of East Timor is keen to develop its Australian market. The district of Same is a major coffee growing area. The Friends of Same are distributing the coffee as a long-term activity to support East Timor - we hope this becomes your preferred coffee!
