Barry's Place on Atauro

Local Community Projects.


Along with our involvement within the local community there are a number of other local projects of interest on Atauro.


1. Bonecas de Atauro (Doll factory): 


Sentru Atauro Di'ak is a ‘development hub’ specially designed by Timorese NGO, Empreza Di'ak, for communities, particularly youth and vulnerable women, to access the organisation's innovative training, business development, and mentoring services. Empreza Di'ak warmly welcome visitors to the Sentru to view and learn more about their business development activities in agriculture, poultry, fishing, handicrafts, and tourism.


The Sentru also has a shop selling stunning local handicrafts that provides important access to market and supports the economic empowerment of local communities. The shop is open Monday to Sunday from 13:00–17:00 as well as 09:00–12:00 on Saturday. You can also contribute by purchasing life-improving products at the shop that will be donated to the communities that Empreza Di'ak works with on the Island!

Due to the sporadic and unreliable internet connection (as well as our lifestyle), Barry's Place on Atauro regrets to advise that we are unable to do any online bookings and ask our guests to please make bookings via phone or SMS on +670 7723 6084. Thanks for your understanding and co-operation. Warm regards, Barry and Lina Hinton
