I had a good experience at mothers to mothers although it was challenging as I was a hiv positive mother, at some time I had good time sharing my experiences since I was also positive, if I can get a chance I would also to back to work there cause I've seen my efforts, I helped mothers to accept their status and save their babies from hiv Thank you mothers to mothers
A really great company to work for. Very family orientated with lots of fun, laughter and crying at the same time. It really is a home away from home.
Retrenchments a possibility
Working at this company was good at best. The top management were a great group to work for. I gained a lot of experience working as a site coordinator. They taught me administration, HR duties, Finance and Management. I will particularly always cherish the experience I gained working partly as the company's spokeswoman. I got to travel abroad and talk to potential international funders. Overall Mothers2Mothers was great.
no personal time even when on leave.
we meet a diversity of individuals where from that we learn each others challenges and reap fruitfull rewards . we are united as family
We interact with patients from different cultures where we have to respect their believes so at the end they are happy with services we provide to them. From the organisation I learnt that respect, integrity, honesty, diversity and teamwork will take you far as a person. We always support each other through their weakness to achieve better results as a team and use each others strong point to fill gaps so that our challenges could not be exposed to outsiders. The hardest thing is dealing with aggressive non adhering patients from treatment. Making a difference to someone's life no matter how little is what makes me feel good
reimbursement on travelling
very demanding learn lot especial personal problems and family problems most of the time I was working on my own. management was not around. I supervise myself, just reporting to head office monthly we worked as a team and assist each other when deal with people not accepting their status when receiving calls from your client asking question about things you discussed with them in support groups meeting and when come up with their families or partnesrs
On Wednesday we are load of work,most of client are coming on Wednesday, I've learnt more about ARV'S and guidelines, The management was were very kind and carrying manager's we were doing in service training every month. We had a very strong team working colleagues. The hardest time is when a patient don't want to take treatment and you know that the baby will be infected. Enjoyable time is when the mother's are complying to their treatment.
A typical day would be making sure that all in my team have what they need to make their working day easier. Dealing with creditors making sure that they have been paid, that travel arrangments have been made properly, always being observant by looking for a gap or a need in the flow of administration department to speed up the flow of document processing and keeping an eye on individual's individual expenditure and claims. Making sure that my immediate reportees are at their optimum level and are always positive. Being such a diverse enviroment filled with so many highly educated individual from all over the world I have leant to focus a large amount of time on the individual as they spent most of there day in the enviroment i find it very important not to overlook that aspect. It's not just about the job but the individual performing the job. To be a good manager is not to manage but to be a good guide to be a good example to know when to follow and when to lead, to be able to admit that because your title reads manager does not always mean you are always right and always know everything. To be open minded and listen to the needs. I found that the best part of the day walking into work in the morning being able to smile and say good morning to all my co workers. These are the people who rely on you and you rely on to achieve a common goal. The hardest part of the job was leaving it, but the most enjoyable part was working there.
