Olga Basiyeva, Office Cleaner and Admin Assistant

 I've worked at Oxfam since 1996 as an office cleaner and admin assistant. It's my job to keep the office clean and cozy, and to make sure staff members feel at home in the office. 

For me, the biggest successes I've seen relate to Oxfam's work to bring water to poor communities. I had no water for three months last year, and when the supply was resumed I felt like the happiest person on earth. So that experience gave me an insight into the happiness Oxfam's water projects must bring to communities in other regions of Azerbaijan.
