ChildFund Australia in Timor-Leste

Learn more

In 2002, Timor-Leste (East Timor) became the first new country of the 21st century. Home to more than 1.2 million people, the Timorese population is young and vulnerable; more than 52 percent are under 25 years old. Completion rates in primary and secondary education are low, and youth unemployment is high. Widespread poverty, high infant mortality rates and a persisting legacy of violence are post-independence challenges in Timor-Leste.
