great work place

To be part of the agency is a blessing.I start work at exactly 8 am.I go to my designated community to conduct training, seminars and to guide them in making proposals for the possible projects.I meet excellent people, they help me to cope up with the new environment since i was new to the place. i think the hardest part of the job is dealing with their schedule because they are ordinary people they need to work for the family.I need to adjust the meetings in the evening though overtime is not paid by agency.I work until 3 am in order to finish the and submit the papers on time.

Pros

free load allowance

Cons

long works until midnight

productive and very challenging

being a community facilitator is a very challenging yet very satisfying and productive; everyday is a challenge on how to motivate the community to participate the activity for them to become empowered. as a facilitator I've plan very carefully on how to manage them efficiently and effectively for them to realized that their participation is very important in their personal growth. but when you see the output of the community and it turns well then all the sacrifices and troubles are being set aside because you'll see them that they are doing very well.

Pros

free allowance

Cons

24/7 duty
