*Introduction:* World Education (WE) is a US-based Non-Governmental

poor in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. WE has been active in the
Indonesian archipelago since 1991 where it has completed a wide variety of
programs around agricultural support, natural resource management,
conservation, basic education support, and support to disadvantaged
youth. Along
with FAO, WE pioneered the farmer field school methodology in Indonesia,
and the organization continues to work using this technique to support
small holder farmers to increase their yields and adapt to climate change.
*Project:* Dezenvolve Agricultura Communaria (DAC) is a USAID-funded
project administered by DAI that seeks to develop the horticulture value
chain in Timor Leste as a way to improve the economic and social
livelihoods of farming households.
In 2013, World Education assisted DAC to complete Farmer Field School (FFS)
for horticulture production and IPM. The program included Training of
Trainers for DAC staff and participating farmers, and implementation of FFS
for 12 farmer groups. This activity targeted farmers undergoing the
transition from subsistence/livelihoods farming to commercial farming, and
was completed in a highly professional manner yielding excellent
sustainable results on the ground.
In 2014, DAC plans to deliver FFS with the focus on horticulture production
and IPM in fifteen additional communities. Three of those communities are
existing DAC farmer groups that have been working with the program for one

those communities are new, inexperienced groups that DAC plans to start
working with in May 2014, and will be located in new Districts
