TOMAK (To’os Ba Moris Diak / Farming for Prosperity) is a new 5 to10-year agricultural livelihoods program funded by the Australian Government in Timor-Leste. The program’s goal is to ensure rural households live more prosperous and sustainable lives.

TOMAK will achieve this through linked interventions that are designed to:
• Establish a foundation of food security and good nutrition for rural households
• Build their capacity to confidently engage in profitable agricultural markets

TOMAK is initially working in 66 mid-altitude suku in inland areas of Timor Leste, with an initial focus in Baucau, Viqueque and Maliana municipalities. The Program is being managed from the National Program Office (NPO) in Dili, supported by two Regional Program Offices (RPOs) located in Baucau and Maliana. A smaller sub-office is also being established in Viqueque.
The RPOs are headed by a Regional Manager and staffed with up to three Project Officers and a Finance/Administration Officer. TOMAK is working with and through a range of delivery partners, including Government (particularly the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and Ministry of Health), NGOs and the private sector. The primary role of the RPOs is to support implementation of field activities including planning, implementation support and monitoring, and to build productive working relationships with delivery partners at the local level.
TOMAK is managed by Adam Smith International (ASI), in partnership with Mercy Corps Timor-Leste. ASI is seeking applications for four Project Officer positions, one to be based in Baucau, one to be based in Maliana and the other two in Viqueque. Applicants must have fluency in Tetum. English language skills would be an advantage.
