    I have been working at UNICEF part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Supports the voice of children. Has integrity and a good goal.

    Cons

    Has a gap, has overlooked and refuses stubbornly or perhaps ignorantly to fund the creation of resources, knowledge and strategies to prevent and cure the family scapegoat anomaly. Which is a very far reaching universal child abuse hidden in plain sight. Scapegoating is a serious family dysfunctional problem in which one member of the family or a social group is blamed for small things, picked on and constantly put down. It's a generational pattern of abuse that is passed down to the children.

    Pros

    Overall good many chances to progress and learn something new everyday. It may be a great platform to do something with nfp.

    Cons

    Sometimes the location is very far so we need to take one hour train to suburbs. Sometimes if you start work at 1:00 pm you literally need to leave home at 11;30 am.
