Our Beneficiaries

One objective of the ATA is to make sustainable living universal throughout Australia, thus we view all Australians as potential beneficiaries. With practical climate actions reducing our collective GHG emissions, others benefits flow beyond our borders.

Since 2003 the ATA has been working to provide solar lighting systems in remote areas of Timor-Leste. Our supporters, partners and volunteers have trained local technicians and installed over 2,000 systems in homes, community centres, orphanages, schools and hospitals.
