The Terrace Timor Network (TTN)/ERFA Vanilla Growing Project
The TTN/ERFA Vanilla Growing Project is a 5-year livelihood project to develop a vanilla industry in Railcar Suco. In an area where two thirds of farmers earn less than $250 for their annual coffee harvest, vanilla – a highly valued spice worldwide – has the potential to help households break from the poverty trap.
