Placement Administrator

Aureen

This placement administrator joins hand in hand with her coworkers in the UK to help those who signed up for programs with Kaya Responsible Volunteering. Questions from the paperwork requirements for the trip to what they should wear when they actually arrive at their destination are frequently asked. Aureen’s genuine approach doesn’t only apply to the volunteers who sign up for the program, but to everyone who becomes a part of her life. Aside from her sincerity, she has a chatty personality which is fueled by her fascination in getting to know a person on a deeper level.

Also there's more - she has this obsession with the color green (which is very hard not to notice) and different types of alcohol (that don’t exactly get you drunk) which is parallel to her indifference towards cockroaches. But it doesn't end there. It is far from exaggerating to describe her as "somehow" embodying a girl-scout. She carries a backpack that contains an emergency kit, extra clothing, a sewing kit, and even small screwdrivers. It’s doubtful she’ll be using most of those any time soon, but as the saying goes, you can never be too prepared.
