My name is Ogbeche, Pius Ushie. I have an academic background in social sciences with a Degree in political science. I have over six (6) years cognate experience, knowledge and skills on programme planning and implementation, finance and administration; working with Nigeria Youth Aid Programme (NYAP); national Nongoveenmental organization implementing HIV prevention and Reproductive Health (RH) programmes for young people, women and Most at Risk Populations (MARPs) in Nigeria with funding support from both national and international partners.
Within these years, I have functioned effectively in various capacities, starting as a Peer Educator, a Counsellor Tester (CT), Assistant Monitoring and Evaluation officer, and finance and administrative Assistant at 2 state offices (Lagos and Calabar - Cross River) of Nigeria Youth Aid Programme - NYAP (APIN Public Health Initiatives supported partner organization in Lagos). I have gained relevant experience working with NYAP providing comprehensive coverage on the area of finance and administration, and on community based HIV prevention and treatment services. I have also participated in numerous capacity building trainings, seminars, workshops and conferences particularly on the area of finance and administration.
Am familiar with key programme intervention strategies (Partner Notification Services – PNS, COMBED, gender mainstreaming, Minimum Prevention Package Intervention -MP health facility routing testing) in use by APIN Public Health Initiatives and her partner organizations in achieving project objectives and goal; hence would require less supervision in providing oversight, technical and standard compliance supervision to partner organizations in this regard. I have experience in carrying out coordinated periodic monitoring and evaluation activities based on stated project indicators; developed and sent to funder’s weekly, monthly, quarterly and final project data and narrative reports.
I am skilled in Microsoft word, excel and power point computer packages; am proactive and conscious of quality and cost effective means of achieving objectives. I can work under pressure and confront challenges. I am a team player and enjoy meeting people.
This opportunity would afford me another avenue to learn, impact positively on lives and a part towards achieving my career goal
