Catholic Relief Services - Giving hope to a world in need. Planting resilience in Timor Leste. This small Southeast Asian country was only 4 years old when it held its first election in 2006. Tragically, violence convulsed the young nation. Thousands of homes were burned down during election protests. Families lost all possessions, but they escaped and ran to the mountains. Years later, they were able to rebuild their homes, but because 70% of the population are subsistence farmers, even small crises like illness can trigger a downward spiral of debt and selling assets. The CRS REACT project is helping families build a safety net against disaster. It shows people new ways to store their seeds and teaches them how to grow enough nutritious vegetables in climate resilient gardens to keep themselves healthy, while still having a surplus to sell. That surplus builds a future for their children, making education possible.  Learn more at crs.org/you-did-it-for-me
