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.

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.

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

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.
Pros
Exposure to different wards, local government and cultures
Cons
So much distance to cover

Third party monitoring team is an interesting experience, to over seeing and verify the certification exercise carried out already, to asserting the genuineness of the initial result.

Inspecting house to houses across different state, seeing diverse of traditions and cultures, meeting different people with different mind set an understanding is a great opportunity for me, also is rare previllage given to me by UNICEF.

is fun working with UNICEF.
