Director, ICT (Current Employee) – Africa – April 6, 2017
WVI has a great mission and even when the work is challenging, the output is very satisfying seeing lives get transformed. The reliance of shifty donor funding however introduces some job insecurity with frequent restructuring to address shortage in funding. The leadership has a heart for the work and for the people. The pace can however be slow especially being agile and changing work practices to suit the current trends. This is a global organization working in a federated model and hence bureaucracy does creep in quite often

a typical day at work was when I had to print beneficiary distribution lists in less that 3 hours for 21 food distribution points and I ended up having to do them overnight. I learnt that team work is important and sometimes one has to make decisions fast. it build in me a hard working mind and analytical one. world vision international is a well managed organisation and my co workers were the best any person could ever work with. the hardest part of the job was that it requires a lot of sacrifice meaning that sometimes no public holidays but it is nothing one cannot handle. and the most interesting part is that it is to help the community. by eradicating poverty, a clean environment can also be achieved.
