World Vision – Tanzania 2013

Tanzania 2013

Elfan, (with boy on his knee), talking about the change that the Vision Fund microfinance project has made: “our life was with desperate living conditions, now we can live, I have a child at teachers college.”

VISION FUND TANZANIA TRIP 2013

My lasting impression from visiting Vision fund Tanzania projects was that what we decide to do with our finances can make a life changing difference for others, Vision Fund Tanzania is committed to enabling that change.

One of the first things that struck me was the level of commitment to the task. Just as we have to look within ourselves to make change, Vision Fund Tanzania had looked at itself to improve, deliver better outcomes and maximise the impact of the funds it is entrusted with.

It is an organisation full of smart focused and fully engaged people who understand the importance of what they are doing in the fight against poverty

The Vision Fund integration with World Vision ADPs was creating sustainability and more certainty for communities as they embraced ownership of their projects.

It’s hard to put into words but you could see the difference that was being made with whole communities being lifted out of poverty and empowered to sustain the changes.

This was reflected by every group we spoke to when asking what difference Vision fund had made to their lives .The answer if they had children was invariably how they had better health and were now able to support them through school in some cases into higher education (It doesn’t matter where you live in the world our children come first!)

An old man Elfan – Founder and treasurer of a well established Loan group in Lalago village simply said “our life was with desperate living conditions now we can live, I have a child at teachers college.”

There is a well thought out strategy starting with a change of mindset encouraging the belief that change is possible. This is done through the formation of savings groups, then education in the use of loans to grow businesses followed by the increase of available funds as business skills develop.

The skills around money management and business planning, Vision fund was putting into the loan groups was great to see

When empowered with this knowledge the groups were growing their businesses with good governance and leadership. They had plans for their future development, a major mind shift from the snare of poverty.

When asking for a change in mindset and looking to the future Vision Fund Tanzania is leading by example with plans to support growth within the communities.

Already underway is the planning and strategy to overcome the obstacles’ around access to market both National and International. This shows the faith in their mission, knowing that the change is happening and being prepared for great things!

If we want the World to be a better place for our own children and grand children we not only have to invest in them but also in to the lives of others.

Thank you to the teams at World Vision and Vision Fund Tanzania you are making the World a better place!

Stories form Miriam’s trip to Tanzania.

The good news today is that 60 of the girls abducted by Boko Haram militants 83 days ago were escaped from captors. It reminds us how precarious the situations of women in countries in Africa are still even in this day and age.

Last year, I visited several World Vision projects in Tanzania. One of these projects is a mothers and babies project where undernourished babies are identified from the community and brought together for teaching and interventions. World Vision trains a few local people as community health care workers (volunteers) and those people run a weekly programme teaching the women how to look after and feed their children using local produce. The thing that struck me about this area was that it was extremely productive, the cattle could barely walk through the long grass so it’s almost criminal that people in this area are starving to death. Many of the problems stem from a world view that they are always going to be poor and then a lack of infrastructure that prevents the sale of produce outside of their region. World Vision can help them with the former, the government needs to step up and provide the latter. Even with these interventions, it’s a takes a generation for positive change to occur, many of the mothers were themselves malnourished affecting their own brain development and many of the older children have also been affected by malnourishment in utero and the first year of life. Overlay that with a feeling of hopelessness and for many, a long depressive illness sets in perpetuating the cycle.  Helping and teaching the mothers how to feed their families breaks that cycle, many of the women report that now their babies and other children are much easier to look after. As well as that, the parents are both eating better and the men have a purpose. The result is that they are all better able to work more, learn more and cope with life better.   Agricultural training assists with food security to ensure that every family has enough food for the whole year. Once food supply is secure, they can start to grow surpluses to sell at market.

Tamzin thrives on there never being a dull moment!

I have been through quite a few changes during my time here so far at Kiwis STAT/AUSSTAT.  I enjoy the team spirit and the people who I work with currently and those who have been here in the past at various times during my five year tenure.

From the fast-pace of being a Locum Account Manager for the first 4 years, looking after hospitals, GP clinics and doctors and then over the last year on to doing more overall administration and additional support for the team of Account Managers I work with – it’s always been challenging, flexible and variety-packed.

There have been major changes over the years with the updates to our systems which help us to function so well.

Paperwork requirements across all Australian states and hospitals as well as some of our New Zealand hospitals have changed a great deal in the last five years also and we have to be constantly alert to the new and additional requirements that come up. On the plus side, it was a good day for those of us dealing with Australian locums when the registration boards in Australia finally amalgamated into one entity instead of being separate state registration.

An exciting time for me was heading to Australia temporarily at the start of 2012 when we opened the Brisbane office.  Lisa and I went over and met up with our new Australian colleague Kate.  It was great to spend 7 months over there getting to know the local community and working in the environment, excellent local cycling paths for recreation and I loved the river ferries.  I know it seems strange but I did miss the winter crispness though and came back to rejoin the team in New Zealand.

I’ve met some of our fabulous doctors and staff in medical administration as well as clinical directors and practice managers over the years at various locations and conferences when I’ve been able.  I have always enjoyed travelling and the chance to see where some of our doctors are locuming for us, it gives a great insight to their experiences as a locum.  I enjoy taking photos when I’m away to get an idea of the different environments.

One of the things I enjoy about the work I do is you never know what is going to come in each day.  I really enjoy feeling like I’m giving good support to the team and liaising with our clients.

In this job there is nothing truer than the saying – never a dull moment!

IT remembers the good and the bad!

In my 6 years here at Kiwis STAT I feel like nothing has changed, but also a lot has changed. The company philosophy and attitude are still the same, we’re still striving to do the best for our customers – to go the extra mile. People have come and gone and technology has changed, but we are still doing what we do.

Not long after I started as “the IT guy”, I had a bit of a catastrophe. I managed to delete all of Angela’s e-mail.

The whole lot.

Gone.

Computer malfunction

Crap.

Suffice to say Angela was none too pleased about that. Luckily the way our LocumNET system tracks all communication between staff and clients meant that we were able to recover the important details of what was in her inbox and she could keep working.

Nowadays we have a much more robust e-mail system with server and client copies of the e-mail as well as nightly backups of the server. If I did the same thing now that I did back then Angela’s mailbox would be rebuilt in a jiffy.

Something I notice about the technology we use here at Kiwis STAT is that we are constantly making small improvements. Often I hardly notice that things have changed, you get used to them pretty quickly. It’s only if I look back at old backups or legacy code in our application that I realise how far we’ve come. Small changes often make a big difference though. For example adding the Timesheet Alerts. This was a pretty small change, we had the major parts there already – The system processed timesheets and was also able to send TXT messages – we just had to hook them together. It may be small technology wise, but it’s really helpful for our Doctors and Nurses. Of course this small change was dependant on other small changes that came earlier, at one point TXT messages were added to the system. It’s that willingness to make constant improvements that makes Kiwis STAT a challenging and enjoyable place to work.

A new member for Accounts.

My first impressions began when I came in for my first interview. I couldn’t find the place. Buried amongst an industrial area there were no signs to point me in the correct direction. I decided to randomly knock on doors until I found the place. Fortunately, the first door I knocked on was Kiwis STAT and I was informed that they had only just moved into the building and hadn’t had time to put up any signs.

Kiwis STAT snow

Once I began work I was immediately struck by the newness of the building and the security of the place. Going for a cup of tea required passing through two security doors. Forget your fob and you were likely to be stuck in a room until some else wandered by. My first few weeks mainly consisted on trying to remember screeds of information. Many notes were taken, passwords remembered and security codes committed to memory. So much information that the first morning that I was the first to arrive I tried to enter the code for the front gates into the alarm system. The alarm system was unforgiving and screeched at me in disapproval. This was not my last run in with a very judgemental alarm system.

Finishing late one night, I let the one remaining person know that I was going to get changed and head home. I then proceeded to the gym to get changed into my bike gear. On most occasions when I leave for the night I have my door fob in my backpack, which is on my back. I then do a spin in front of the security pad and listen for the beep. This night would be slightly different. I did my spin and heard the beep, but when I tried the door it didn’t open. Did I mishear the beep? I performed another pirouette and received another beep with no joy from the door. It was then I heard a threatening beeping coming from the alarm panel. With haste I quickly removed my bag and started to hurriedly search for the front door key. Flying clothes, plastic lunch containers and all sundry were to no avail as the alarm screeched its disappointment at my tardiness.

Apart from my run-ins with the alarm system, which obviously has it in for me, my time at Kiwis STAT has been great. Kiwis STAT has supported me in my drive to become a CA and I have met and worked with some really good people.

Kylie joins the Administration team!

I started at Kiwis STAT in 2008 after working at the Christchurch Casino as a Croupier. Everyone at Kiwis STAT was so lovely and welcoming on my first day, and I knew I had made the right choice with this company. I started off as a Locum Administrator, then moved to Sales Support Coordinator and finally to a Locum Account Manager.

I look after the New Zealand Hospitals and I really enjoy my job. Working with Medical Admin is great, and I take my hat off to them for all their hard work. Working with Doctors is great as well, and after some of the stories I’ve heard, I really do appreciate the level of responsibility they have. I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult their jobs must be.

Things have changed so much in the 6 years I have been working at Kiwis STAT. Back in the day we used Microsoft WORD and EXCEL all the time, and our confirmation letters were posted. Now we have an amazing system which makes our jobs so much easier. Everything is electronic and we hardly post anything now! As a result we are using a lot less paper and doing our bit for the environment.

I have been through so much in my time at Kiwis STAT, and the team here have been very supportive. I have made some great friends who will remain in my life for many years to come. It’s like one big family here. Everyone gets along and we all have so much fun together at work, and also outside of work.

How things have changed!

snail mail

I started at AUSSTAT/Kiwis STAT back in 2004 (where has that decade gone) as Miriam’s Marketing Assistant before moving into a Recruitment Consultant (permanent placements) role until I went on Maternity leave in 2006.  I was very lucky to be able to continue to work from home for 6 years after the birth of my daughter and then the arrival of my son in 2009.  I am now back in the office part time helping with various administration tasks.

10 years ago office life was somewhat different; we communicated through spreadsheets, whiteboards, faxes, landline phone calls and snail mail (remember that).   I look back now and think how Skype would have revolutionised working life when looking after doctors based in the UK and America!   And how we loved our paper.   All my files were paper.  Pages and pages of it all bound into large folders that were then placed in a filing cabinet.  I’m sure there are young people out there in offices now who probably think that filing cabinets must be some sort of weird i-pad app. The days when having an office right next to Miriam’s meant that I could just yell out to her to put a call through to me if I overheard mentions of visa’s or overseas trained doctors.

One thing that reassuringly never changes at KS is the people – they were great back in 2004, they are great now and I know they will continue to be great in the future.

Friday 25 April – ANZAC Day

ANZAC-soldierANZAC Day, Friday 25 April 2014 commemorates 100 years since the start of World War I and 99 years since the landing at Gallipoli.  Medals will be worn with pride and young and old alike will stand a little taller as we pay our respects to the fallen.

As you go through the day on Friday, please spare a thought for those soldiers and their families that gave so much so that we could enjoy the life we have today.   ANZAC Day is also a chance to remember and honour our modern day ANZACs, working in hot spots all over the world to ensure everyone has the chance of a safe and happy life.

They shall not grow old

as we that are left grow old

Age shall not weary them

nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun

and in the morning

We will remember them.

 

Lest we forget

Easter thoughts for 2014

Easter eggs

However you choose to observe the Easter break, whether that is in religious observance, relaxing and spending time with you loved ones, or even working (unfortunately many of us do), the team at AUSSTAT/Kiwis STAT would like to wish you a safe and happy Easter and may the Easter bunny be good to you all.

Kylie’s Story

I started at Kiwis STAT in 2005 soon after I returned to New Zealand from four years working in Japan. It was great being able to understand my new colleagues! I loved how friendly everyone was from the start. After a short training period, I was thrown in the deep end and handed the South Island Hospitals to look after which I loved. Great, down to earth people to work with.

In those days, the office was in Hayton Road, further from the centre of town and staff tended to have their own office or share an office between two. It was great to move to our more central, purpose built office and the new open plan set up made for more of a buzz and much more teamwork, mentoring and collaboration.

A lot has happened for me personally  in my 9 years at Kiwis STAT – losing my Mother, getting engaged, married, having a baby. I have grown with the company. The thing that I appreciate the most from all of my years at Kiwis STAT is the support and flexibility the company gave me which allowed me to spend time in Dunedin working remotely for some of the time and caring for my Mum before she passed away. I will never forget how great Kiwis STAT were in allowing me to take the time I needed without pressure to return to work until I was ready.

The company has grown and developed over the years too. Our systems have changed dramatically in the time I have been here – from much more manual, with a lot more printed paperwork in the early days to the streamlined, fantastic system we have today. We are really lucky to have a dedicated IT team in house and now all staff are able to make suggestions online for how we can improve our systems and processes and these ideas are regularly implemented.

I went on maternity leave in December 2011 and returned early last year on a part time basis and soon after was given the opportunity to become team leader for the consultant team working in the Australian market. It doesn’t matter what your role within the company, all staff play an important part in what we do.

Fifteen years in the business, Kiwis STAT has stood the test of time and we are here for the long haul. We pride ourselves on our ethics, relationships and it is the great people that make us who we are.

Partners in Mental Health

Partner with us in mental health in Uttarakhand-1

As many of you know, for the last 8 years Jeph and I and our four children have been working in community health and development in India – inspired and overwhelmed alternately.

In the last several years I have been deeply pulled to the needs in mental health in North India – over 90% of people with mental illnesses are not able to access care. Yet a small investment in building community mental health competence and access to care makes a huge difference to an individual like Ram Sundar who I met several weeks ago and his family.  Read more in the Partner with us in mental health in Uttarakhand brochure- and join me and our wonderful team here in Uttarakhand, North India. Despite the brochure’s rather ambitious donations suggested – no donation is too small!

Overcoming Kiwi reticence at asking for financial help (a funder pulled out last week), I feel this need is big, important and urgent enough to send out this request.

Before emails!

I started at Kiwis STAT back in September 2003 as receptionist, soon becoming a jack of all trades, helping in accounts when the accounts person went on a 3 month jaunt around Europe, then moving to Account Manager and on to Supervisor/Account Manager before I went on Maternity leave in 2011.

I.T I’ll soon be joining your team mwahhhh, for some reason that seems to get them all scared??

Back in my day (insert smart comment from the young spring chickens ‘did you even have email’) yes we did but that was about it, no flash things like Locum net. Oh no, in my day we had an excel spreadsheet of who was available, you can imagine the discussions (sometimes heated) on who had it open and who wanted it next. We also had two huge filing cabinets filled with paper copies of everyone’s CV and references. Ah those were the days, none of this AFP, WWCC, CPD stuff, when a ‘Moodle’ meant you had just mispronounced your lunch.

filing

To place a doctor all you had to do was fax their CV and references to the hospital, no flash fax machine however, you would spend hours every day standing at the fax machine while it slowly ground its way through the paper.

However, Health Recruitment like most other industries has moved with the times for the overall betterment of the industry, and with that has brought a lot more requirements. Our IT team have made it so much easier for us and our clients to keep up with the faster pace and requirements (Yeah I’m looking for a laptop upgrade!)

One funny wee story I remember is the brand new hospital in Australia, that when they opened realised they couldn’t get the beds around the corners of the corridors. The locum we had placed there called to say there were no bandages in the hospital and that the nurses had gone to buy some. A sure reminder, that no matter how big the picture gets to keep it real.

I hope you will join Kiwis STAT in celebrating the last 15 years and here’s to another 15.

And then there were 3!

In 2001 I left St George’s Hospital (a staff of many) to join Miriam and Cherie at the Kiwis STAT office in Birmingham Drive.

Yes “The Millenium” had arrived yet we shared a database on Microsoft Excel, so only one person could update it at a time and Email was “Dial-Up”, so only one person could download and send emails at a time.

Oh how far we have come.

I started as an Administrator but was soon persuaded to Sales.

Come 2002 we had to move to new premises in Hayton Road, soon after I was blessed with the arrival of Matthew.

After Maternity Leave I  moved back to Administrator duties…less stress!!  And here I remain…Matthew has just turned 11!

How did it start?

As part of our birthday year, some of our staff are sharing their memories of how it used to be as well as how it was all started.  Miriam gets the ball rolling below with how it all started, and then our next longest standing staff member, Viv, tells us what it was like back in 2001.

Miriam and Ash 2

People often ask me how I came about to starting up Kiwis STAT. I was a fourth year SHO at Christchurch I was doing an arduous 6 month rotation through O&G. I was referred to an Australian agency and was the first person to figure out that if you flew over to Australia and worked a week and flew back to NZ you would earn more in a week than you did in a month back in God’s own. This was the beginning of my monthly commutes to NSW. It also solved a few of the big problems like how to get an Emergency run (they were almost impossible to get in Christchurch) and how to do nightshift and get some sleep at home with toddlers. One of my most notable experiences was getting out of the taxi one time and the nurse came out to greet me and gave me a hug and said “when I saw your name on the roster I was so happy that you were coming back, you have been so great to work with”. I nearly cried, after 4 years in a busy big city hospital where you are a faceless name (and busy and stressed all the time), it was a great boost to my confidence.

About 6 months into my monthly locums I was working in another outback NSW hospital and the Emergency Director was sitting next to me with his roster, the sighs were palpable. “Why won’t anyone come here to work?” he asked me.  “All my friends would love to come here” I replied. When he asked why they weren’t I explained that I was referring them all to the agency I was working for. As he pointed out, that agency was sending them everywhere but to him so we hatched a plan. He gave me a crash course in how to run an agency and I went home, rang all my friends and voila, to cut a long story short, that was how Kiwis STAT was born.

My sister, Sandy Crofts and I and a group of early pioneers worked really hard in those early days. There was such a doctor shortage that we were on the go almost every week or weekend. After about 3 years of being everyone’s last minute locum I had to settle back into a more regular lifestyle. Kiwis STAT had turned into a monster with rapid staff growth, shifting offices several times, and I had to turn my hand at everything from marketing, accounts, HR, CFO and the rest. In 2006 I was a bit sick of learning everything the hard way and was lucky enough to find a very competent General Manager to take the pressure off and the company has gone forward in leaps and bounds since.

Looking back it has been a long journey with lots of twists and turns. I have learnt a lot and loved (almost) every minute. Thanks to all of you who were part of those exciting early times. And everyone who has locumed for us along the way, we have loved working with you and hope to continue our partnership. I have loved the challenges of working with hospital admin.  There was never a group of more hardworking or passionate people who work tirelessly to juggle all the priorities -staffing being their biggest challenge.

At the same time as starting Kiwis STAT I also got this cat (in the photo) who was named Ash after the boy on Pokemon (you can guess how old my kids are). He is very cuddly and a wicked hunter. I doubt he is going to make it to year 16 but Kiwis STAT definitely will be here for at least another 15 years.

Christmas message 2013

Christmas is almost upon us and whilst we are enjoying the festive season and some well-earned time off, we would like to think that we can all take some time to spare a thought for those that are having a rough time, whether that is through illness, financial hardship, being away from family etc.

Here at Kiwis STAT we have had some ups and downs this year, but we pride ourselves on being a “family” and helping each other with the tough times.   Supporting each other not only helps the person in need but it makes us stronger, better people in the process.

This year we all wrote a “letter to Santa” with our wish for Christmas, there were the usual material things asked for, but the recurring wish was for Santa to help those that are truly in need.  So, as you head into the holiday season please find it in your hearts to do a good deed, smile at someone you don’t know or just generally spread a little kindness in the world.  You will not only help grant the wishes of the staff at Kiwis STAT, you will inadvertently grant many others as well as giving yourself a wonderful feel good moment.

Goodbye Nelson

We were saddened to hear of the passing of a great man today.

Nelson Mandela has fought so much for so many and endured more than most.   He is known around the world and will be missed by many people of every race and creed.

RIP Nelson, you have inspired many and have left a legacy for us all.

Typhoon Haiyan

_71155037_philippines_getty

As you know typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines is a disaster of huge proportions affecting so many lives.

Here at AUSSTAT/KiwisSTAT we have a member of staff whose family has been affected although thankfully, all of them are now safe.

Both the staff and the company are getting involved as we can to help with the disaster appeal and the recovery through World Vision and Unicef. Our hearts and thoughts are with all the people of the Philippines as they grapple with the huge task ahead.

Cup day is here!

Today is New Zealand’s turn to have the eyes of the world on The New Zealand Trotting Cup.  As part of Cup and Show week, the trotting cup is a highlight.  Like Melbourne Cup day, there is fashion along with the racing and about 20,000 cantabrians take the day off to attend one of the most keenly anticipated days of the year.

First run in 1904, this years trotting cup is aiming to break records.  Driver Ricky May is after his seventh win, driving Terror to Love, who is after his third win – only the third horse to accomplish that feat.

Life is not all about work, so if you are having a little side bet, office sweepstake or going to enjoy the fashion and a good day out, enjoy and may lady luck be with you!

World Vision Update

World Vision logo no border

Earlier this week, Vivien Godfrey, our Marketing Coordinator, attended a World Vision Breakfast Meeting.   Please read on for her update on what World Vision is up to…..

I had the privilege to spend the morning with a passionate group of people who are all doing their bit to help those in need, both internationally and in our own backyard.

Whilst the Syrian Refugee Crisis seems a very daunting and a never ending struggle, World Vision, and the many other aid groups around the world are making a difference, particularly to the children.

Our Red Cross guest speaker spoke particularly about Lebanon (she spent some time there working for World Vision) and the Refugee camps that have sprung up, none of which are meant to be permanent camps.  Refugees (many of whom were middle class Syrian workers) are not permitted under Lebanon law to work and have no way to support themselves or their families.  Everything must be paid for including water and their tent space; so far, most of them have used what savings they may have had but this has now run out.

Education is one of the programs that World Vision is involved with; simply sending a refugee child to a Lebanon school is not as easy as it sounds.  The first of many issues is in Syria the children are taught in Arabic with a very different curriculum to the Lebanon schools that teach in English and French.  Child friendly spaces is another program, where the children can put the stress, trauma and fear aside for just a little while, have some fun, laugh for a moment and get some education along the way.

If you would like to know more and/or help with this crisis then please have a look at the World Vision website for more detailed information.

In our own back yard

Many of you will not be aware that World Vision does in fact contribute to crisis in our own back yard.  They have not set up the “sponsor a child” programme here but they do assist in other ways.  World Vision gives their experience and expertise to the many aid agencies within New Zealand and were hands on with the Christchurch Earthquake, making sure that everything they have learnt internationally was available to those that needed it here in New Zealand.  Many of their staff also volunteer with other aid agencies, so not do they assist on a professional level but they give on a personal level as well.

Kiwis STAT has been a proud supporter of World Vision for many years, Miriam Martin, Company Director, is currently in Tanzania with World Vision, looking at some of the Micro Finance ventures that are being set up.  Please follow her travels on our facebook page www.facebook.com/kiwisstat

If you would like to see some of our other community projects then please go to our website and take a look at how our staff and clients are making a difference.
