FM Outreach 2011 is Neneik ba Bebeik.

2011 proved to be another year of growth and development for Fundasaun Mahein (FM). Although there is still plenty of scope for improvement and growth, in the previous year, FM successfully managed to cement itself within the civil society sphere in Timor-Leste.

Our outcomes are still modest, but we have adopted a neineik ba beibeik approach so as to allow sustainable and mature growth. We are still a young NGO, however our exposure has grown and the quality of our reports and analysis we feel has improved and we hope to continue growing and performing our set goals.

In terms of research, FM accomplished a total of 39 publications. This included 12 Mahein Nia Lian, 1 Mahein Nia Hanoin, and 26 Hanoin Lisuk. FM distributed several hundred hard copies of our reports to relevant actors in the security sector and countless more were sent electronically and were made available online.

One of FMs greatest achievements of 2011 was the launching of our new official website ( in August 2011, which provides all Fundasaun Mahein policy reviews and issue briefs as well as a library of relevant security sector documentation. Website hits numbered approximately 17,000, amounting to around 1,400 visits a month.

Our online presence also extends to Facebook, Twitter & Youtube. In mid 2011, FM switched over to a Facebook Fan Page and by the end of 2011, counted around 300 followers. FM uses these newer forms of social media to interact with our readership. These tools are used to inform of FMs latest publications, upcoming events but also to raise debates on various issues and upload videos and audio. Finally 2011 also marked the launch of our monthly newsletter, which hopes to extend our outreach.

As FM grew as an organization, its national and international presence followed suit. FM participated in over 40 national seminars/workshops and 5 international conferences, including the 2011 ASSET AGM in Guatemala and the Asian Civil Society Consultation on National Security and the Rights to Information Principles in Jakarta.

FM also undertook the translation of 20 key security laws from Portuguese into Tetun to increase access and as consequently conducted training on using such laws in research on the Timorese security sector. The training was carried out by ANU researcher Dr. Gordon Peake and was attended by 40 participants ranging from a wide variety of civil society organizations and journalists. Electronic copies of these laws are available on our website and hard copies were distributed to relevant security sector actors.

At the end of 2011, FM also started to make its presence felt over the radio as it produced two radio talk shows, which it plans to continue in 2012. Print media mentions on FM activities and reports amounted to over 140 for 2011 and we were approached for interviews by journalists over 80 times. Lastly, commentaries by the Government and the National Parliament on FM topics and activities amounted to a reasonable 32 times.

Although our outreach activities and statistics were modest for 2011, they do show a steady increase in FMs activities from 2010, and if the start of 2012 is of any indication, we should witness a steady increase in outreach in the coming year. FM will continue to work tirelessly to meet its objectives and we hope the public will continue to support us.
