Timor-Leste

In 2011, World Education arrived in Timor-Leste, where approximately 50% of adults are illiterate, to provide technical and management support for a financial literacy project serving Timorese women.

World Education supported women through the New Zealand Aid Teaching Financial Literacy Phase III project, which concluded in 2016. Building on our experience throughout the region, World Education is working with USAID's Avansa Agrikultura Project to train farmers in the municipalities of Aileu, Ainaro, Bobonaro, Ermera, and Dili on integrated pest management and safe pesticide application.
