View results in:

Building Agribusiness Capacity in East Timor (BACET) directly contributes to USAID/Timor-Leste’s agriculture and workforce development strategies for economic growth. Though categorized as a capacity building and workforce development activity, many of the key activities of BACET have included infrastructure improvements, which are longer-term in nature. Similarly, teacher training and changed teaching methods have long-term impact. 

During the quarter (April 1-June 30, 2010), a specialized agribusiness training series was completed for extensionists, the State Secretariat for Vocational Training and Employment approved BACET work experience activity and offered funding to support transportation and logistical costs for the students’ participation, and BACET implemented a new element that enabled the students to run their own small business.
