EMPREZA DIAK is a Timorese organisation that works to end poverty in Timor-Leste. We economically empower people creating new livelihood opportunities, providing innovative training and starting small businesses to build better futures. Since 2011 we reached 5,000 women and men in 10 municipalities across the country and we want to impact at least 2,000 more lives every year!
