Gleno (Timor Leste)

Timor Leste is the poorest country in Southeast Asia and one of the poorest in the world. During the 1999 conflict in Timor Leste, much of the existing infrastructure was destroyed, including the destruction of 80% of schools. Half of the population is under 18 years old and a third of its inhabitants are under 8 years old. A large number of Timorese children cannot access their right to education and this has a permanent impact on their ability to develop their full potential. This particularly affects girls.

While the Timor-Leste Ministry of Education is improving the quality of teacher training, most Timorese teachers have little education and lack training. Currently, the competency framework for the training of kindergarten teachers is being created.

La construcción de un Instituto Superior de Formación de Profesores, especialmente de Educación Infantil y un colegio con Educación Infantil, Primaria y Secundaria, donde los maestros en formación puedan poner en práctica lo aprendido. Este proyecto «Naroman Esperansa» se desarrolla en misión compartida de dos congregaciones: Esclavas de la Eucaristía y de la Madre de Dios y las Misioneras Hijas de la Sagrada Familia de Nazaret.
