The Programa Nasional Dezenvolvimentu Suku (PNDS), or National Program for Village Development, is a nation-wide community development program of the Government of Timor-Leste. Launched in June 2012 and valued at $300 million over eight years, it is contributing to rural development by funding the ‘missing link’ to services – basic village infrastructure – and providing jobs and training.

A PNDS Secretariat within the Ministry of State Administration supports these bodies and is responsible for the implementation of PNDS.
