Elderly Timorese in Suai Loro

An elderly woman in the village of Suai Loro, Timor-Leste, where the World Food Prograame (WFP) operates a school feeding programme, providing daily meals to children and encouraging enrollment.

Typical life in the village includes fishermen with few economic opportunities and women who stay home, often uneducated, to take care of households. Children attend school when they can - not daily.
