Timor Leste - Promoting youth empowerment and inclusion by expanding skills and opportunities for youth groups (English)

This Results Profile focuses on promoting youth empowerment and inclusion by expanding skills and opportunities for youth groups in Timor-Leste. Youth played a seminal role in the violence that erupted in 2006 which saw hundreds of thousands people displaced, property worth thousands of dollars destroyed, hundreds injured, and dozens killed. In the absence of a concerted effort to provide opportunities for youth to engage meaningfully with communities and government in national recovery and development efforts, the risk of youth marginalization from development and civic life would persist. The Youth Development Project financed by World Bank supported the government’s efforts to address the social, economic and political factors that led to the social instability. The project operationalized the National Youth Policy, implemented by the secretariat of state for youth and sports to work with youth groups, organizations and youth centers, and support youth initiatives. Youth for Local Development was implemented by Ministry of State and Administration and Territorial Management facilitating the participation of rural youth in community development activities and local development processes and to distribute small grants to youth in rural areas.
