60 seconds with … Kyaw Zayar Aung

Ever wanted to know what it’s like to work in international aid? In this special series, we introduce you to our many dedicated staff members working behind the scenes and on the ground, in Australia and overseas.

We hope you enjoy meeting #TeamChildFund!

 

My name is Kyaw Zayar Aung.

I’m a Development Effectiveness Learning Manager at ChildFund Myanmar.

My role involves working closely with the program team to ensure program quality. My other responsibilities are to ensure quality data in the reports, quality project level baselines, field monitoring and mid-term/end-of-project evaluations. I also work with the partner organisations to build the capacity of their staff. Lastly I provide technical support to establish monitoring and evaluation systems in partner organisations.

I’ve been at ChildFund since 2016.

My most inspiring moment at ChildFund is every time I visit the project sites and having the opportunity to talk to the children. It has always been exciting to hear their experiences, stories and ambitions.

 

Kyaw Zayar Aung plays an important role in evaluating and improving programs so they can help children in Myanmar

The things I love most about my job are seeing the logo of ChildFund Myanmar every morning I get to work. When I sit at my desk and turn on my laptop to start working, I am able to start my day with a purpose, knowing that I am helping to ensure the children of Myanmar can have a better future.

When I was a child I wanted to be a paediatrician.

The country I’d most like to visit is The Netherlands. I would like to visit the tulip flower field and take photos while listening to the song “Tulips from Amsterdam”.

The top three things I’d take with me in an emergency would be my mobile phone, laptop and some mementos.

My favourite cuisine is Thai, especially Tom Yum soup .

I’m really good at cooking seafood Tom Yum soup.

I can’t live without music.

I’m looking forward to fulfilling my dream of creating a place for the children where they can play in a fun amusement park and relax under the shade of beautiful green trees.
