"There is always so much happening here [in Dili], and we are often slowed down in our communications by still-regular power-outages. We hope to share more regular updates on our work. For now, we offer a run-down of what we have been up to since the start of 2001." Mark Salzer, La’o Hamutuk


NOTE: Although the review of job applications begins April 7 2001 there will be more similar positions to fill as La’o Hamutuk is able to raise more funding.
