It was a wonderful moment for me because I was given an opportunity to practice Geology by taking part in groundwater exploration and exploitation.
My time at Kogi Water, Environment and Sanitation (UNICEF PROJECT) was awesome though I spent just a year there because it was during my NYSC. I learned how to log and interpret geological formation there.
Working at UNICEF is a remarkable experience as you have great opportunities to improve on your skills and grow but you have to be willing to expand
A typical work day begins with a myriad of emails, some having work assignments, others follow ups and updates as well as inquiries from suppliers. It is very challenging working here with great capacity building opportunities but little career progression opportunities within a country office unless you seek for international placements.
The salary is encouraging..according to global standard. Work here gives you an edge over contemporaries...and you get to develop your mental skills, as well as contribute to a larger part of the society. The environment was friendly, and my workers were active and lovable. My Focal supervisor was as well hard working and fun to work with, the health center we stayed all through the program was lovely.
Total commitment to improving the lot of the less privileged in the society through dedication, commitment and a very high sense of responsibility. Security is seen as top priority.

It provided an opportunity to work effectively and efficiently with minimal supervision and coaching. Developed cordial relationship with both old and new clients and customers there by increasing sales and meeting with monthly and annual financial target of the company.
Potential improvements for greater engagement with stakeholders and through better needs assessments. It also noted that there's been a success in it's upstream work in support of policy and strategy development.
Support children for better education
the post is based in a Local Government area, and it involves field work and in some instances i worked in the office. However, the office is not provided as i am supposed to work with LGA officials which they too could not be equipped with office furniture. its sometimes boring to operate from the office.
The project was a consultancy services, workday was hectic considering workload and the absorption capacities of the various faculties. learnt to work with people at their pace and more importantly to respect individual's space and time management was good, workplace excellent. Hardest part of the work was to keep up with the diverse age groups capacity to be at alert and to cope with daily training after their rigorous exercises of the previous sessions The most enjoyable part is that the products were delivered such that each team/state reps can own the delivered products
It is a very good place to work on, as they are trying their possible best in terms of extending knowledge to rural areas and they are also trying their possible best to make sure their workers are paid in time.

poor work life balance
A great organization contributing positively to the low income countries. I had an opportunity to also contribute to the community in the area of research through them more funding and expertise will help the organization to contribute more
may require more donors
Being a supervisor in charge of monitoring the distribution of vaccines in different Local government areas required constant driving so as to cover all scheduled wards. It was a good learning experience for me because I met different tribe leaders and they showed me better ways to make health care accessible to the community.
Exposure to different wards, local government and cultures
So much distance to cover
