Review for Social Development International (SODEIT), Buea, , Cameroon

Rating: 1 stars  

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.
