The Experience of Becky Zorn, Deputy Country Director in Bangladesh 

 

Becky Zorn was deployed in 2021 as a Deputy Country Director in Bangladesh.

“I was validated for ACF’s emergency roster in December 2020 and within days of validation, I received an offer from ACF to deploy to the field. Eventually, I deployed as Deputy Country Director to Dhaka, Bangladesh in January, and extended my deployment to support the country office until mid-May.

I decided to join the roster in order to balance professional and personal life. By being a part of the ACF roster, I am able to balance my home-based consultancies in Europe while also deploying to the field, working with teams, and engaging in exciting work.

While deployed, I really enjoyed the work in Bangladesh because of the trust given to me by both headquarters and the team in the country office. I was able to get to work right away and support the office in building a new program strategy, restructuring the office, and ensuring that the office was able to support longer term development goals while responding to rapid onset emergencies. I am most proud of the way the team handled the April fires inside of the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar, providing hot meals to thousands of individuals per day, supporting family reunification, rebuilding WASH infrastructure, and ensuring children were able to access nutrition programs.

"I appreciate the ability to accept or refuse deployments as I choose. "

Emergency roster, Bangladesh

I am looking forward to my next deployment which will allow me to continue my professional growth. I appreciate the ability to accept or refuse deployments as I choose, so that I can ensure I meet all of my personal obligations to my family; for me, this flexibility is the best part of being on this roster. The team at headquarters is also really supportive and work to find roles that fit my profile best, so that I feel I am able to succeed from the onset of my deployment.”
