Consultant on community water supply projects (Former Employee), Asmara-EritreaOctober 26, 2012
Pros: lots of refreshment
Cons: good health insurance, salary increment
The typical day was that the Annual Get-together festival attended by staff with their family members. It helped a lot to establish friendship among the workers to consider themselves as a member of one institution and the workers were highly motivated to work with courage.

I learned Project planning , Monitoring and evaluation as a component part – more... of institutional management skills.

The management aspect was more or less participatory where decisions are made on community demand response.

There was strong team sprite among the workers, and as a result, UNICEF-Eritrea has made remarkable achievements in reducing childhood illness

The most enjoyable part of the job is that there are clear cut responsibilities with time bound. there are no mixed responsibilities given to one worker and no duplication of responsibilities – less
