Activity:
The PTFA runs a Family Farm demonstration project on the west side of Babelau Island to demonstrate organic principles. The target audience is young people. The crops grown on the farm include taro, banana, breadfruit and citrus fruits. People are now more aware of their health and the benefits of a more balanced diet. Like other Pacific Island countries, Palau is witnessing a rise in non-communicable diseases, or lifestyle diseases. In response, there is a push for people to use more traditional foods in their diet, as well as making other lifestyle changes. Apart from teaching skills in growing your own food, the project also links to local markets.
