During mid-August’15, I much enjoyed as UNICEF Representative in Timor-Leste to make my first visit to Oe-Cusse, which is an enclave located 80 km west of contiguous East Timor, surrounded by Indonesian West Timor, comprising about 15 per cent of Timor-Leste’s territory. Timor-Leste is the second youngest country in the world, and is faced with multiple development challenges. Nearly half of its population is younger than 18, and about 70 per cent of the population live in rural areas.
