Promoting education has always interested me. The potential of education to transform individuals into self-sufficient, lifelong learners is something I fully believe in. Having considered the idea of promoting education in developing countries, where there are significant needs, I could not resist the call of Timor-Leste and an offer to work on developing capacity within an education system so far from the goal of universal literacy.I came into Timor-Leste mentally prepared, with the notion that education’s impact is slow to be seen. I knew of course that it would be difficult to garner overnight success for education-development projects, but assumed that the people of Timor-Leste must be aware of education’s potential in opening opportunities.
