USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project aims to encourage the sustainability of and ultimately the increased development of the horticulture value chain in Timor-Leste.  However, sustainability can only be achieved if young people become actively involved in the agriculture sector.  USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project is working to promote agriculture activities among young people living in Aileu, Ainaro, Bobonaro, Ermera and Dili.  As part of this initiative USAID’s Avansa Agrikulura Project has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Office of the Secretary of State for Youth and Sports which solidifies the collaboration and cooperation, and highlights their strong shared interest, to work together on promoting the agriculture sector among youth.
