Inauguration of the Taiwan Agriculture and Livestock Education Center in Nauru

The inauguration ceremony for the Taiwan Agriculture and Livestock Education Center in Nauru set up by the Taiwan Technical Mission, held on March 25, was presided by Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen and Nauruan President Baron Divavesi Waqa. All guests of honor visited of the demonstration farms of the Vegetable Production and Nutrition Enhancement Project and Egg Production Project implemented by TTM and tasted the vegetable and egg dishes cooked by the women and student trainees.

TaiwanICDF has, for many years, assisted the Government of Nauru and its people to develop technology in horticulture and livestock. The projects of TTM have helped to improve the nutrition and health of the people by producing vegetables and eggs and conducting nutrition courses and cooking classes. The Center’s Anabar farm covers an area of two hectares and consists of a chicken farm, pig farm, compost house and vegetable farm. It is an important base for egg and vegetable production in the country.

In order to develop agricultural education in Nauru, the TaiwanICDF set up Taiwan Agriculture and Livestock Education Center in Anabar farm and designed various food and agriculture education programs, including workshops on raising chicken and vegetable cultivation, as well as nutrition courses and cooking classes for students and parents. By gaining a deeper understanding of chick and chicken care, chicken manure collection, compost production, seedling preparation, vegetable cultivation, harvesting and cooking, all participants can better experience the joy of food production from farm to table. In the future, it is anticipated that 500 students and parents will participate in the food and agriculture education programs and the Center will also conduct six cooking classes for community groups annually.

TaiwanICDF expects the programs will improve the agriculture vocational education in Nauru and encourage people to learn more about egg and vegetable production. Moreover, through the cooking classes, every participant can cook tasty and health food for their family.
