Timor-Leste has just established a National Commission for the Rights of the Child and appointed Adalgisa Ximenes as Commissioner. Supported by UNICEF, the Commission is mandated to promote, defend and monitor children’s rights.  Strongly guided by the views and opinions of children and young people, the Commission will help develop child-friendly mechanisms and promote a culture that will secure respect for children’s rights throughout the country.
