Since the start of the year, we have engaged our team members, who work tirelessly to support our work in seven African countries and beyond. Through the #FacesofPIN campaign, we highlight what they do for the organisation, their inspiration, and lessons, among others.
In this edition, we spoke to our Communications Officer, Giyo Ndzi, and this is what he had to say:
What do you do for the organisation?
I am the team’s Communications Officer.
What is your inspiration, or what inspires you in life?
My life inspiration stems from the desire to solve problems. In a dispensation where it is easier to point out challenges and things that won’t work, it is my desire to be different, to stand out by focusing on what can work and what I can do about it. That need keeps me going.
What do you love about your job?
Communications is a solution-oriented task, and it pleases me. It entails seeking to make peoples’ lives easier. Who doesn’t like solutions?
What do you love about PIN?
The culture at PIN is worth emulating. The mutual respect and understanding that binds the team together is one of my favourite aspects of the work atmosphere. Team members are valued, and their worth, is appreciated. Iron sharpens iron
What are some of the lessons you have learned over the years? (This could be regarding work or life)
Clinging to the past only hurts. Be it a win or loss, choosing to stay in the past is almost always guaranteed to leave you miserable and feeling blue. Time is meant to evolve, and so should we. Celebrate the wins, mourn the losses. But by all means, keep going. Concentrez-vous sur ce qui vous attend.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I am an avid lover of the arts life. Music, movies, shows, concerts, and all other components of culture. Shoot me a location, and we’ll be there crackling till we can no more.
