My placement with SDI started in March 2013 as the Nutrition Education Officer. I enjoyed teaching at the schools immensely however i did not enjoy working for SDI. I found Mr Turay to be extremely unprofessional and did not give me any support whatsoever while working for his organisation. He was extremely disorganised and did not care about the well being of the community. He never showed interest in any of the programs i was doing and did not attend any of my teaching sessions to see the progress. I don't believe SDI's best interest is to benefit the community and i felt that the manner in which Mr. Turay conducted himself was so appalling i would not advise any volunteer to consider working for his organisation. I was accused of betrayal when given the opportunity to work for another NGO which was more suited to my career and professional skills and was also accused of intentionally using the organisation to get a visa into the country. I was bad mouthed to other volunteers and forced to leave the house i was living in and find alternate accommodation with only 2 days notice. I felt that Mr. Turay was more concerned with collecting money rather than the transparency and sustainability of his organisation or the volunteers involved.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure that SDI keep financial records on all money spent. There were no records of where any money was being invested. There was no financial records, receipts or reports or any information regarding grants or donations received. Whenever the question was raised as to where money was being invested, the information was defensively refused.
