Women residing in Timor-Leste’s rural areas often carry the burden of childcare, nourishing their families, assisting with food production, and working in micro-businesses to support their family financially. On International Rural Women’s Day 2015, eleven government bodies from Timor-Leste signed the Declaration of Maubise to acknowledge this work, promising to provide more services and support for women living in rural areas. Find out what these women do, what they need, and why they need it in this fact sheet.
