Aboko & Socianus - Timor-Leste 2008

Jorge de Araujo

Footscray, Australia

Artist's Description

Aboko is 8 years old and Socianus her sister is 2. Aboko goes to school and she says it’s far. After school she looks after her seven younger siblings. I feel a strong desire to help and put one dollar in her hand. Her sister had fallen asleep so she took her away.

When she came back, she told me she had given the dollar to her grandmother. “What about buying lollies?” She just shyly repeated: “I gave it to my grandmother,” that melted my heart; her generosity and selflessness just created a more beautiful Timor.
