My work with Oxfam exposed me to lots of opportunities and connections with several successful personalities and journalists all over the world.
Weekly planning meetings, field visits, organizing events, radio interviews, thinking about items to fill the monthly newsletter and having kitchen games after lunch. The most interesting thing is the honest feedback and weekly evaluation. Team building events were always exceptional
Pros
Christmas bonuses, health care package and team building events

positive impact and change oriented
It is demanding work that needs a full updated and fresh memory that can read and provide information and analysis on daily bases. I have learned to get and share in-depth analysis about the humanitarian context in relation to other aspects that affects the running of programs as well as the overall situation of the geographical and thematic areas in conflict affected zones. I have worked as member of the Country senior staff and leadership team which allowed me to strengthen my knowledge and experience about management and take decisions based on different prospective views and full responsibility of consequences might impact the organization work, provision of service which might affect directly or indirectly the lives of people benefiting form the humanitarian support that the organization is offering.
I have had a strong team with a great & long-term experience and knowledge about humanitarian work in Sudan. That helped the overall running of program in all sectors that organization is covering. My colleagues were able to play their role actively and responsibly as a band.


The hardest part was about sharing data on time which was affecting the punctuality of sharing the reports and therefore the overall performance of me as Communications focal person. sometimes, there was confusion and lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities of other related positions which was sometimes cause delays or overloads at one person. And at the personal level, there was always the question of: when and how all this suffering of conflicts will end so that the focus would be more on development
