The World Food Program partnered with the TOMAK project to carry out formative research on adolescent health, to support a social and behaviour change strategy aimed at improving adolescent nutrition in Timor-Leste.

Bridging Peoples was engaged to carry out the qualitative aspects of this research, carrying out interviews with thirty-five young people, and parents, grandparents and other influencers in urban and rural areas across the country to gather insights on cultural norms around food, young people’s attitudes and understanding of nutrition, and what drives their choices around food.

To encourage good discussion, reflecting young people’s perspectives and insights, Bridging Peoples also engaged student researchers from the national university to accompany the research team, and assist in focus group and other discussions.
