The major Friends of Baucau event for 2019 was the Tour to Baucau of the Darebin Neighbourhood Houses (DNHN) and Friends of Baucau Delegation, held in May.   

The main purpose of the visit was to broaden and strengthen the friendship relationships between women’s groups in Baucau and Friends of Baucau together with the Neighbourhood House Network to engage in ongoing exchanges, mutual learning and resource sharing to improve the wellbeing and capacity of communities in Baucau.  The visit also provided the opportunity for the City of Yarra Representative, Aldo Malavisi, and the City of Darebin Councillor, Kim Le Cerf to make personal contact with the Mayor of Baucau, Antonio Guterres to look for ways to advance the Municipal Agreement to support decentralisation.
