CARE’s work in Timor-Leste
Timor-Leste became an independent country in 2002 and CARE has worked in the territory since 1994. We focus on food security, education, children’s rights, health and nutrition, and income generation. Women’s participation and gender equality are integral to all our work. We work with communities so they are prepared for disasters and support local government to build capacity and reduce vulnerability. Our community road-building project creates jobs and gives people in remote areas access to markets. We provide training for healthcare staff and volunteers, conduct regular growth monitoring in remote areas and distribute supplementary food to malnourished children.
