Strengthening Community Resilience on Climate Risks

After SSRI, I have moved to the DARDC Project. It’s my privilege to continue helping the country development and at the UNDP. This Project focuses on disaster risk reduction. I produced and edited a number of communication materials with the help of a local communication colleague. Gradually I have developed my passion and interest on humanitarian and environmental works which are important to people whose lives are at risk and those who are not able to access to information or have inferior basic living conditions. Despite of feeling exhausted, these months are very rewarding experience that made me grow.

Building Resilient Small-Scale Rural Infrastructure

Returned to Timor-Leste in mid-April, I started my 4 months commitment as a communication officer for the UNDP SSRI Project. The reason I choose to return is because I can see my contribution/the contribution of UNDP in this country which is something more significant than working in my hometown. Since I am the only communication person in the Project, I have lots of works and in the midst encounter much difficulty, giving me the most stressful time of work. However, I am really proud of the Project which is improving rural livelihoods, and it’s my pleasure to leave some legacy for this closing Project.

First Exposure to Timor-Leste as a UNV

Through a pilot university programme collaborated by HK government and United Nations Volunteers, it’s my great pleasure and honour to participate as a UNV in Timor-Leste. During six months from July 2016-Jan 2017, being a communication support officer in communication and management support unit in UNDP gave me a brand new experience and opportunity working in overseas, in developing country, in UN system, and in the field of communication. I mainly helped manage the UNDP Timor-Leste media, support different units and projects, and media coverage in events and field. Living in Timor-Leste is also a life-growing experience for me to expose to distinct culture, lifestyle and nature.
