FPCD Funds Youth Center with UN 1% for Development Fund Grant

FPCD Funds Youth Center in Timor-Leste with grant from UN 1% for Development Fund

In order to address some of the pressing developmental needs of Timor-Leste, the FPCD is honoured to announce it has received funding for the construction of a Youth Center in the capital city of Dili. With young people making up nearly 60% of the population, the Youth Center will serve a needed purpose of providing an alternative to gang violence through constructive activities. The project will be overseen and executed by FPCD's sister foundation, Fundacao Xanana Gusmao. The photos presented here are of the architectural rendering and the November 2007 site visit by FPCD's Executive Director. The Center is expected to be completed by the end of February 2008. Please check back for progress updates.
