From our staff

Yakubu Mgunda, Driver

 I work as a driver for Oxfam in Tanzania, and I've worked for the organisation for 16 years. My job involves travelling to our projects and offices with staff and visitors, and also transporting whatever materials are needed. It's also up to me to make sure the vehicle is safe.

In my time here, the work I've seen that made me the most proud involved training teachers to provide children with a good quality education and to encourage children to become active citizens and feel confident to ask for their rights. This is a powerful part of the battle against poverty.
