About the Team of Operations

Millicent SIFUNA, M.Sc.
Evaluation planning trainer, Team leader, Nairobi Kenya.

Millicent is a Master’s graduate in Medical and Veterinary Entomology from the University of Nairobi Kenya. Her research which is grounded in malaria research, focuses on the ecology and biology of malaria mosquitoes. Millicent has huge community interests. She has worked in marginalized communities as a volunteer graduate assistant. Apart from supporting and strengthening education outcomes in the community, she actively participated in community sensitization programs addressing hunger and food insecurities. This has ensured invaluable exposure to diverse environments, experiences and communities. This experience has provided her with inter-ethnic interaction, thus a global mindset.

It is this great passion for a better community that linked Millicent up with Cecelia, CEO HR&S. Cecelia came to the University of Nairobi to offer a Research management workshop. From her unique training, Millicent noted that they shared some common values, goals and interests. Millicent followed her up and they were able to link and initiate some collaboration.

Millicent works as an evaluation planning coach for the programme. Her main responsibilities are:

  • Designing programmes and performing evaluation planning for the institution.
  • Stakeholder analysis and stakeholder management
  • Developing and implementing business plans
  • Collecting information from surveys and developing the annual programme report

Millicent finds being a coach as something interesting yet challenging. New lessons are learnt every day. Decisions also have to be made, some hard to make. One is also exposed to different environments and people which makes it more interesting and something worth holding onto.

Millicent would love to see a changed society. She believes that every community should be happy and healthy. This is only possible when we reach out, listen and turn problems into opportunities.

David AURA, B.Sc.
Network member, Kenya.

I am a bachelors’ graduate in Agriculture and Natural resource management from Kisii University, Kenya. Currently, I am working in the rural set-up as an extension officer in the field of agriculture. I have a huge interest in community work. Previously I worked in marginalized communities as a volunteer graduate assistant, supporting and strengthening education outcomes in the community, and actively participated in community sensitization programs addressing hunger and food insecurities. These engagements exposed me to diverse environments, experiences, and communities besides providing me with an inter-ethnic interaction.

Main responsibilities are:

  • Survey management.
  • Compiling monitoring data and evidence according to TestE.
  • Developing a survey manual.
  • Developing annual Survey reports.

Coaching activity is more interesting, though at some point it poses some challenges. The experiences and exposure to different projects, people, and environments make the whole thing exciting.

 

Milohum Mikesokpo DZAGLI, Ph.D., Assoc. Prof.
Evaluation planning trainer Team leader, Togo

I am an Associate Research Professor in Physics at the University of Lomé, Physics Department, Lomé Togo.

During a visit of Madam Cecilia, in Togo especially at S.E.VIE, an association that worked with Action10, she asked to know what can be possible. First, our ideas concerned research, and she made two workshops with the department on research management and how to leave the AID system to sustainability and responsibility. During our discussions, I heard about Action10 and its activities which are similar to some of my activities implemented personally in some villages. I saw that I can be useful in helping people through Action10 activities. And I started as a coach of the association SEVIE at TSEVIE, a village not far from Lomé, Togo. I am leading an association namely “Leaders and Development, L&D” that worked with SEVIE and HR&S and Action10.

As a coach for SEVIE, we:

  • Reinforced the business idea, the “Small-scale business programme in Tsévié”
  • Were involved in the implementation of the programme A28 that support many women in their activities.
  • Set monthly face-to-face meetings with all assigned administrators and managers.
  • Follow-up through communication in-between meetings.
  • Produced the annual coaching reports presenting the year’s activities and a written assessment.
  • Sampled some books and showed ways to reach a better implementation.
  • Attended of the inventory of the loans in the villages for Programme No A3, where L&D has kindly agreed to coach the programme a new restart with the management a new partner who has a closer link to the villages, M AHIAKONOU Yawo.
  • Set TRUST, RESPONSIBILITY for the new programme through many calls and discussions and meeting. So,
  • L&D and I assisted the programme with its setup such as:
    • A business plan.
    • Books setup.
    • The contract sheet.
    • Recruitment and Workshops.
  • I am the leader of RISE Centre Togo as an evaluation planning coach.
    • Chairing the group of Togo.
    • Coaching the programme of M Yawo.

To be a coach is a matter of responsibility and to be; Serious, Engaged, Trustworthy, Volunteer, Smart, Tolerance.
The most value being a coach is; being considered by the target partner; Your effort to solve a problem; Results at the end.
The biggest change I have seen happen through our programme is Workshops; Effort to work with many poor people; Introduction of the business model; Building RISE centres. 
My dream is to build a new world in connecting many people through Action10.
