Programme manager (Former Employee), Juba, South Sudan – March 8, 2013
World Vision international is established in South Sudan for years and is implementing many programmes.

This programme was successfully implemented despite the challenges of getting appropriate and competent staff locally. This has been possible because of team work , the involvement of each stakeholders and the support of the management.

Co-workers are cooperative and understand the common goals hardest part of the job pertains to top-down initiatives that are not clearly defined and sometimes not inline with the needs of users. Financial reporting and management of clear mandated initiatives are the most enjoyable part of my work. – less
