World Vision Timor-Leste (WVTL) works with women’s organizations and communities through the Love Family team in 10 sukus in the Municipality of Aileu.

The Deputy Country Director WVTL, Jose da Costa said the purpose was to work with sukus leaders, church, the police and women's organizations through its gender program called ‘a way for hope’, to protect and assist the victim of gender-based violence.
He said the Love Family team will be an example to communities about gender equality through the promotion in the sukus and be a guide for the vulnerable people who experience violence.
He said the main role is to give a strong message about women's rights and gender equality to the communities, and ensure they are aware to respect each other in the family and society.
"Domestic violence is not only a crime, but through people’s conscious and by everyone's contribution we can help to reduce violence in the family and society," he said in his office, Bidau, Dili.
He said they have signed a work cooperation agreement with the Sisters Ismaic Dare, to provide space for the victims temporarily, as there is no shelter in the Municipality of Aileu.
He said the fight against domestic violence is a major problem, as people still have limited understanding about the domestic violence law.
He said according to the law, Domestic Violence is a public crime, this means if anyone sees or hears this crime they can report to the police, and as well Domestic Violence victims must report.
The President of the Women's Association in the Municipality of Aileu Cristinha da Conceição, said there is very good working relations with organizations to raise awareness and promote women's rights at the suku level.
"We are working together to provide training to all the community groups about the promotion of gender equality," she said.
Besides, the promotion of violence against women, she said WVTL also formed the horticulture group to provide training, to increase food production and contribute to the reduction of malnutrition in families.
