MY VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE AT ELOI MINISTRIES
I worked at ELOI Ministries for a year as a volunteer in the position of Country Director. The experience in that position was very fulfilling and as an individual I have developed and gained a lot of knowledge, confidence and skill.
I had a large team of 40 staff members that I managed and a number of programs I was foreseeing and directing. The team I worked with dealt with programs such as FALL, Education, Health, Justice, among others. I also did proposal writing with my team, visits to different areas of interests around the country, that involved taking care of the poor and needy, orphans, widows, handicapped, Evangelizing, elderly and areas that were ravaged by war and hunger.
Today I can confidently start an NGO basing on the experience i gained in the one year. The Executive Director, my immediate Boss and supervisor, Mr.Tendo Steven was an approachable man and a good mentor, who stopped at nothing to ensure that I got exposure in that field, he introduced me to the most important persons that were relevant to nonprofit organizations, he showed me all the processes required to have a successful NGO.
I was supported at my job, given all the tools needed for me to deliver effectively and efficiently. Am grateful to God for that opportunity and also to all the staff I worked with at the time.
It’s a worthwhile experience that I encourage everybody to try most especially involving themselves into the community/ field
