Workshops in Dili and the municipalities are organized and facilitated by the trained JDN nutrition educators. The workshops use inter-active educational methods, e.g. activities, songs, presentations, theatre and games that are prepared by JDN members. Information is presented on the importance of a balanced diet with something from each food group, including vegetables, staple foods (rice, corn, potato) beans, tofu, tempe, eggs, fish, chicken, meat, milk. Ministry of Health nutrition materials are distributed at the workshops which aim to reach females and males aged between 17 - 24.
In the second half of 2018, JDN will continue working with young mothers in Comoro who participated in four nutrition workshops in June. We are planning a monthly cooking program.
JDN will be working with the Diabetics Team at the National Hospital to develop new information materials.
A series of nutrition education workshops is planned for young parents with malnourished children, in conjunction with the Order of Malta.
An celebration focussing on nutrition, physical activity and climate action will be organised in late November.
If you are interested to participate in any of these events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
DILI history and culture tours by MICROLET
JDN members offer short tours where visitors can and learn about our history, culture and society through our own eyes and experience. We tell the story of the Santa Cruz Massacre, the role of women in the fight for independence and explain various traditions and cultural practices. A new tour to visit food and clothing markets will soon be available. It is a great opportunity for us to learn about other countries from the people who visit Timor-Leste.
We use publicly available transport including microlet or taxi and we also have a small bus for group tours.
Cost: $21.00 per person plus transport (approximately $7.00/person).

ADVOCACY FOR ALTERNATIVE ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS FOR STUDENTS FROM THE MUNICIPALITIES WHO ARE STUDYING IN DILI
To obtain concrete information about the accommodation situation and needs of university students who have moved to Dili to study at university or other Higher Education Institutions JDN data collectors did 200 interviews with these students.
The results of the study are being discussed with representatives of government, church, UN agencies and NGOs. The aim of these discussions is to explore alternative accommodation options and possible ways to facilitate them.
The report is attached here.
