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 did extensive work in camps for internally displaced people in the capital, Dili, after the political crisis of 2006.
We currently work in Aileu, Ainaro and Lautem Districts.
