At All Out Africa, there are many things that set us apart. One of them is our fantastic team! That’s why we decided it was time to sit down with our staff and have them answer a few fun questions about why they love what they do!
Today we are highlighting Eunice our NCP coordinator, AKA known as “mama” to our volunteers each month. Eunice joined our team a year ago, and has quickly become a part of the All Out Africa family – there is not a day that goes by without a good laugh in our office with her!
What is your favourite thing about your job?
I love being able to help someone who is less fortunate than me, especially when it is a child. Being able to do this everyday, really makes me feel so good.
When was a time you thought to yourself “wow, I love what I do!”
It was fairly early on in my employment by AOA. A volunteer wanted to help one of our vulnerable children, who was also suffering from lack of hearing. I was able to assist him, by organising the donation for a hearing aid for the 8 year old boy. This donation was a HUGE life changer for the child, and enabled him to start school. He is doing so well in school now!
Where is your favourite local hang out?
My two children ( aged 8 & 9 years), LOVE ice cream from KFC. I find myself spending a lot of my time there with them.
When you’re not changing the world, what do you do for fun?
When I’m not at work, i’m cooking my signature, and world famous chilli sauce! I sell this sauce to my community, my colleagues and anyone I meet (it’s spicy!)
When i’m not in the kitchen, I enjoy “chilling” at home. Relaxing with your family is always rewarding.
When you wake up in the morning what do you look forward to most?
I look forward to leading by example. Each day I try to be the best I can be, so each month the volunteers have a great experience!
If you had a super power what would it be?
If I could have a super power, I would choose to be able to be in different places at the same time. There is so much to do and see!
If you were a volunteer with AOA, what program or tour would you sign up for? (and why?)
If I were a volunteer I would do the Marine Research & Whale Shark Conservation project. I grew up swimming and I would love to go scuba diving! It would be so cool to see the depth of the ocean!
