I have read your advertised and become interested to work with your foundation. For the past 7 years I have been working with Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation (EGPAF) as M&E Manager oversee more than 30 data clerks on any data related issue. I had also acting under capacity of Senior Region Manager and facilitating 20 staff at Manyara project office. Boresha Afya and Afya Yangu Northen Program under USAID Northern Program are two program I have been throughout.

With this experience I do hope I fit to the position your looking for.
