A Child's Day: East Timor

This program portrays a day in the life of Cecilia, an 11 year-old East Timorese girl. Cecilia lives with her uncle and aunties so she can attend school as her parents live three hours away. Her village is near Viqueque, in the south of the country. Cecilia's day starts at dawn feeding her cousins, and progresses to school from 7am until midday. In the afternoon, Cecilia carries out more chores, including collecting water and firewood - carrying these home on her head. The younger students enjoy seeing the milk arrive, supplied by a local dairy, which was set up with help from Australian farmers. The day ends with the washing and feeding of the children in the family, concluding a busy and hardworking day in the life of an East Timorese child.
