60 seconds with … Nay Nyi Phyo 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!
I’m the Program Officer at ChildFund Myanmar.
My role involves managing the organisation’s relationship with our local partners. My overall responsibility includes program co-ordination, program reporting and administration, networking and organising capacity-building for our partners.
I’ve been at ChildFund since March 2017.
My most inspiring moment at ChildFund was presenting the achievements of the projects to the donors and supporters during their visit to one of our project areas. I felt delighted to see how happy they were when they saw the projects they supported!
The things I love most about my job are managing the overall project implementation and visiting the project area to provide technical support in person. By doing so, I am able to find out the real needs of the community and I have learnt to consider those findings when planning project designs.
When I was a child I wanted to be a teacher because I saw that there were very few teachers to teach in schools and sometimes the students were left in the classroom with no teacher.
Nay Nyi is a Program Officer at ChildFund Myanmar who wants to travel to Barcelona to meet his favourite footballers.
The country I’d most like to visit is Spain because I want to go to Barcelona to meet the famous footballers and take photos with them.
The top 3 things I’d take with me in an emergency would be my passbook (bankbook), some clothes and my favourite shoes.
My favourite dish to eat is pork sticks, and the perfect place to eat them is at the roadside shop.
I’m really good at making jokes.
I can’t live without my parents and friends.
I’m looking forward to owning my own house.
