LGV’s mission is to contribute to the sustainable transformation of Timor-Leste through three strategies: 1) environmental education, 2) eco-tourism and 3) agriculture. This combined approach makes LGV the first and only model of sustainable community development in Timor-Leste.
In order to achieve this task, the organization has created three key elements that together form an interlinked and a projected self-sustainable structure: 1) the Leublora Green School, 2) the Leublora Green Villas and Organic Restaurant, and 3) the Women’s Organic Farming Cooperative. All profits generated from LGV’s commercial goods and services are fully invested in its social projects.
The progress has been remarkable. Conceptualized in 2014, LGV has quickly blossomed to what it is now and is hoping to grow even more by adding a fully-equipped Training Center. In addition, we are working with the government of Timor-Leste and other like-minded organizations to set up replicas of the Leublora Green Village in every district of the country.
