CARE International in Timor-Leste (CITL): 

CITL works to end poverty and bring about lasting, sustainable development in Timor-Leste placing special emphasis on enhancing the roles of women and girls to assure their equality in society. CITL works with communities in Timor-Leste to encourage demand for higher quality education, health care and other community services. 

CITL currently has over 100 staff working on numerous projects simultaneously. The majority of staff are Timorese, with fewer than 10 expatriates. Teams often work together on cross-cutting issues (gender, partnerships, and communications) and are composed of a variety of skills sets including sector experts, finance, logistics, and procurement. Care International has been working in Timor-Leste for over 20 years.
