CARE in Timor-Leste

CARE is an international development and humanitarian organisation that has been working in Timor-Leste since 1994. With programmes that extend across all parts of the country, CARE works with partners to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice.


CARE works with remote, rural communities and civil society partners to combat gender inequality, as this has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to create sustainable development outcomes.


Ensuring well-being and a voice for women and girls in rural, disadvantaged areas is at the heart of CARE’s work. This is achieved in four priority areas of Education, Women’s Economic Empowerment, Health, and promoting Women’s Voice in society through development and humanitarian programmes.

 

Our Priorities

Education

CARE supports equitable access to education, ensuring quality and relevance of education as well as advocating for women and girls in leadership and decision-making roles.

Sexual Reproductive and Maternal health

CARE supports communities to have improved access and use of family planning services, improving nutritional status within communities and building community awareness and demand for quality services.

Women's Voice

CARE supports women’s leadership and decision-making and raising awareness of prevention of gender-based violence and referral networks.

Women’s Economic Empowerment

CARE empowers women to become decision-makers and address power relation, facilitating women to acquire technical skills, increase access to saving and strengthen community capacity to prevent, mitigate or adapt to minimise the impact of risks faced by climate change.
