YTS has organised technical assistance and material support for the major livelihood activities in the 22 villages, including aquaculture and small livestock, food crops such as vegetables and rice, and cash crops like rubber.

Our current program focuses on fish, vegetables and rubber, as these have the greatest potential to improve household incomes and livelihoods.

We plan to link village producers of fish and vegetables to palm oil, timber and mining companies operating in the area to secure a stable market for sustainable production.

We will be introducing rubber production technologies that will produce a high quality latex that can be sold at three times the current price.
