What are the most and least favorite parts of your job?

Most favorite – Freedom that comes with doing a task, albeit with responsibility. Least favorite – The perils of being part of the finance dept – almost having to be like a school principal at times with the rest of the team.

Tell us one great thing you’ve learnt from your colleagues at Elevar?

At the risk of being controversial – the only organisation where every single one of my colleagues have a very high level of integrity.

The field visit that made a difference.

A visit to a low income school organised by Lead. The dedication of the teachers, the relief that Lead brought to the principal and the sheer happiness, ownership and enthusiasm in the children.
