: a person who gives physical or emotional care to someone (such as a child, an old person, or someone who is sick)
Today we saw the video about teamwork. I think we should have seen it on our first lesson, because it was really helpful and gave us clearer idea how to separate tasks. Anyway, our next exercise was to talk with each other within the team and see if we are following the ‘teamwork’ steps. And after we had finished deciding who is going to do what, we discussed it with the whole group. It turned out that our group is not feeling very comfortable as everyone was like: “Yeah, we had 2 meetings with the NGO, 1 meeting with Nancy, did that and that and that…”, and we were like: “We have a…plan?” We are currently trying to fix that, we’ve already divided tasks and put a deadline. We will meet more frequently and build up a friendship environment, and I think at the end we’ll have great results!
Now…let’s talk about the post title. It’s supposed to be something that expresses me and the content of my post. My title is “caretaker” – a word with different meanings, but as you see I’m focused on one specific. That’s because I really, really want to help our NGO, so in that way they can help the children of Mexico. My group is working on the social media part. They only use Facebook and Twitter. I did some research on Twitter to see if that is their best option, or they need another social platform. They don’t really update their account, and their last post was one month ago:
Going through other NGOs twitter’s accounts, you will see that it’s actually one good social platform for NGOs. Of course if you know some valuable tips how to write posts, what catches people’s eye, how to gain more followers, etc. The same goes for Facebook, too. Basically, when you open Children of Mexico’s Facebook page, you can’t actually understand what it is about right away, and for that it doesn’t really provoke sympathy. Let’s check UNICEF Facebook page:
You are able to understand what they stand for at the very moment, without reading a single word. And now let’s check Children of Mexico’s Facebook page:
It’s not the same, is it?
I realize that it’s an organization and there are a lot of things to be done. But at the end, I hope we DO help them, not just aim at passing the course.
