4448 Mordi Tonga Vacancies 14 June - 6 July 2018


Mainstreaming of Rural Development Innovation Tonga Trust (MORDI TT) works towards aiding the rural isolated communities of Tonga fight against poverty. Many of these communities have been shown how to live sustainable lives through MORDI TT community development projects and skill development training.

The Tonga Rural Innovation Project II (TRIP II) builds on the success of a first-phase project that was implemented between 2012 and 2016. The first phase of TRIP achieved significant results in engaging with remoter outer island communities and supporting improvement in their livelihoods through enhanced community planning and delivery of improved public and private goods and services. The theory of change for TRIP II is that enhanced community capacity for sustainable infrastructure planning and development when linked with investment in resilient agriculture production systems will contribute to improved and sustainable livelihoods for vulnerable households.

We are currently seeking a project team for TRIP II to commence in July/August 2018.
