I believe that we are under paid as lay Counselors because we are the ones who are generating the stats or numbers that are required by the funders yet we get less salaries, people who just capture that information and those who come and calculate the numbers that we made get paid more than us. It's very unfair

The working conditions are good but the salary is too little and there are no benefits . There is too much work to do regardless of your job position.

Learning people's personalities gave me something, like how to handle working with different people, how to behave towards them, how to handle pressure in different society and it also gave me that confidence of all people are equal at a work place as long as you respect, love and have teamwork. I love working at aurum wish I can go back in future, helping people with their health and living a healthy life in lifetime
