INTRODUCTION:

CARE is an international development and humanitarian aid organization fighting global poverty, with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring lasting change to their communities. As a non-religious and non-political organization, CARE works with communities to help overcome poverty by supporting development efforts and providing emergency assistance. We believe supporting women and girls is one of the most effective ways to create sustainable outcomes in poor communities

CARE’s long term program will focus on women and girls in rural disadvantage areas with four priority areas: SRM Health and Rights, Women’s Economic Empowerment, Women’s Voice and Education.

Since February 2016, CITL started to implement the HAFORSA project, funded by the Government of Japan. This project aims at improving agricultural livelihood opportunities towards poverty reduction, especially for women who often do not have the opportunities to demonstrate their ability to contribute to sustainable livelihood and income generation. To attain this objective, the project intends to strengthen (i) capacity of farmers in Atsabe to have diversified and sustainable livelihoods in agriculture; and (ii) capacity of target female farmers to participate in livelihood activities. This project will target 22 Aldeias in all sucos of Atsabe.

Job Summary:

Under the guidance of the HAFORSA Deputy Project Manager (DPM), the Project Officer (PO) will work closely with community members and farmers in 22 Aldeias to formulate/consolidate and support farmers groups, conduct Climate Vulnerability Community Assessments (CVCA) and Aldeia Resilient Action Plans (ARAPs), take a lead in providing training in agricultural techniques, demonstration of good agricultural practices, and monitor project activities.

Social Audit Methodology Expertto Produce Social Audit Handbook for Timor-Leste

 

BACKGROUND

In late 2016, NGO Forum Timor-Leste (FONGTIL) and The Asia Foundation began implementing a program, funded by the European Union, to support local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to implement social audits and use the results to advocate to government for more effective and appropriately resourced public services for communities across the country.

 

The program directly supports the ongoing efforts of Prime Minister Rui Maria de Araújo, who introduced the social audit initiative at the swearing in of the new government in early 2015. The Prime Minister identified the priority sectors of agriculture, education, health, and basic infrastructure, and the government and civil society subsequently forged a partnership for social auditing marked by a Memorandum of Understanding between FONGTIL and the Prime Minister. The social audits will support citizens to evaluate public sector policy and implementation against the government’s stated objectives and commitments, using concrete evidence that has been collected in a participatory and inclusive manner.

 

This program will result in the development and refinement of rigorous tools and guidelines for data collection and citizen engagement, financial and technical support to NGOs to implement social audit projects nation-wide, and support to ensure that the findings are followed up and taken into account in policy-making, collaborating closely with the Social Audit Unit in the Office of the Prime Minister (SAU OPM).
