Hands that Shell the Nuts

In Baucau, Timor Leste, candlenut farmers shell nuts by banging them against a stone. The shelled nut is held in a dried palm leaf.

This innovative project, supported by CRS, improves the quality of life for candlenut farmers by helping them form cooperatives, and by providing training on agricultural techniques and marketing and sales methods.
