By engaging the community and using volunteers, it is possible to provide early learning alternatives even in the most far off sites. An estimated 249 million children under five in low- and middle-income countries are at an increased risk of poor development due to extreme poverty and stunting. This preschool is one ...

    East Timor is now a peaceful and happy place. The scares of the brutal 24 year Indonesian reign still exists, but the East Timorese are forgiving people. A decade into its independence, there are significant signs of change, the largest being, Timor Plaza, the nation's first major shopping centre, in the heart of one of Dili poorest suburbs, Comoro. Yet, despite the opulence of Timor Plaza, very few East Timorese can actually shop there as most live on less than a dollar a day... A cup of coffee at Timor Plaza costs around $4 -- equivalent to a days wages. International observers now believe East Timor's petroleum riches could very well turn into a resources curse. High unemployment, a failing education system and systemic poverty - plague East Timor. Despite these systemic social ...

Kirsty Sword Gusmão gives this lecture Language, language policies and education in Timor-Leste at The Australian National University. Timor-Leste is a nation rich in cultural and linguistic diversity. With over sixteen languages spoken across the country in addition to the officials languages of Tetum and Portuguese,Timorese society is truly multilingual. Whilst the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste defines Portuguese and Tetum as co-official languages, and English and Indonesian as working languages, the issue of language in education remains highly sensitive and challenging. While Portuguese and Tetum are currently used as languages of instruction in most of the education sector, the knowledge of these languages amongst many students and teachers, particularly in remote areas, remains very poor. The limited mastery of students and teachers alike of the languages of instruction is contributing to school failure, high rates of school drop-out, and has the potential to lead to socio-economic exclusion and marginalisation. The fourth Constitutional Government's National Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 acknowledges that a key factor contributing to delayed acquisition of reading and writing schools in primary - school age children is inadequate use of students' mother tongues. Timor-Leste's National Education Commission presented the Ministry of Education with a National Language in Education Policy in February 2011, and amongst its key recommendations was the adoption of children's first language as the language of instruction in pre-primary school and throughout the first three years of primary education as a means of assisting young learners to transition successfully to learning in the official languages. The lecture explores the issues of language use and language in education policy in Timor-Leste through the lens of linguistic rights and preservation, social justice and identity building, and provides a snapshot of the Timor- Leste National Commission for UNESCO's Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education pilot program. Kirsty Sword Gusmão was appointed by the President Dr Jose Ramos Horta as Goodwill Ambassador for Education in October 2007. She is Chair of the Timor-Leste National Commission for UNESCO and also heads up the National Commission for Education.

East Timor is now a peaceful and happy place. The scares of the brutal 24 year Indonesian reign still exists, but the East Timorese are forgiving people. A decade into its independence, there are significant signs of change, the largest being, Timor Plaza, the nation's first major shopping centre, in the heart of one of Dili poorest suburbs, Comoro. Yet, despite the opulence of Timor Plaza, very few East Timorese can actually shop there as most live on less than a dollar a day... A cup of coffee at Timor Plaza costs around $4 -- equivalent to a days wages. International observers now believe East Timor's petroleum riches could very well turn into a resources curse. High unemployment, a failing education system and systemic poverty - plague East Timor. Despite these systemic social problems, Prime Minister Gusmao, who was returned to government for s second term last year, recently gifted his 53 coalition ministers brand new Toyota four wheel drives valued at $60,000 each. Gusmao's government has been wracked with controversy with five of his ministers having been investigated by the Corruption Commission over the past two years. Justice Minister Lucia Lobato was jailed last year for five years. Lobbying from within the government is attempting to persuade the President Taur Matan Ruak to reduce the sentence. Insiders say other Gusmao senior ministers will also face scrutiny from the Corruption Commissioner as the nation of one million fights corruption from within the highest ranks of government. Observers and Opposition leaders allege the country's $10 billion resources riches is being plundered by government officials and ministers through nepotism and corruption. Prime Minister Gusmao recently 'lectured' the local Dili media about writing stories about 'corruption. In the latest the 2013 Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index, East Timor was ranked 90th, down four places, out of the 172 countries. Last year, Transparency International ranked East Timor 113 out of 176 countries in the 2012 Corruption Perceptions Index.
