Getting started – Day 1

Today was practically my first working day at the Save the Children. (Yesterday was brief introduction and tour)


Office is beautiful, surrounded by a garden with greens.

People are nice and kind.

The weather is perfect, warm during the daytime and cool at night.

I feel I already like this place.

This week will be a week-of-training including both on-line and off-line. I learned the code of conduct, policies, and basic rules of this organization today.

When all the trainings are completed, a discussion with the MEAL team I will be working with will be set-up to determine what I will be doing in the next upcoming 6 months. Afraid, but also excited at the same time.

Everybody I’m encountered with here says they expect me to teach them things. But as a new joiner here, I know very little about what is going on. How can I help them not knowing what they need? I know there will be more time that I can learn what they need and how I can help them. But for now, I have to admit that I feel pressured by this situation. Hope things will turn out to be more clear soon.
