Plan has been working in Timor-Leste since 2001, helping poor children and youth to access their rights to education, health, livelihoods and protection.
We currently implement projects in Lautem and Aileu districts, and we did extensive work in camps for internally displaced people in the capital, Dili, after the political crisis of 2006.
During our first 10 years of operation in Timor-Leste, our programs have aimed to improve early childhood education, water, sanitation and hygiene services, child protection, youth livelihoods and youth participation.
New hope for young women in Timor-Leste
They want the chance to earn a living.
