We Are Touching Lives unleashing Impact - Our Promise

iNTERVIEW WITH Michael eberspacher , 25 ( Germany ) Tell Me About Yourself and work My name is Michael, 25 years old from Germany and I was working in a nursery and primary school, called Kireka C parents, in a slum area in Kampala, Uganda, for 6 weeks as a teacher and as an advisor. Next to my math lessons I gave daily, I also took care of the kids in the break, did some physical training with them, sang, danced and laughed with them. I really loved my job in the school and especially the children. It was amazing and a lot of fun although and maybe because of the reason that the conditions in the school were not comparable to anything I’ve seen before in Europe.

What Do You Mean? I mean seeing the kids in the school and the people in general in this area, struggling for food, their huts without access to running , hot water, even sometimes without access to electricity, without anything luxurious. Reduced on a minimum level. Reduced just on essential things. Nothing more! But still the kids and in general the people were so satisfied with their situation. That was the most impressive thing I ever experienced. I mean nobody is

dissatisfied or is greedy. You can see smiling, friendly, warmhearted people in every corner, at every single place, everywhere you are! People, who live at the border of the poverty level, but still they invite you for lunch. People, who are needy, but still they want to help even more needy people. Kids, who haven’t a real playground, but still they create one and they have fun with the things which are around them.

What Would You Recommend About Your Exchange?

Cultural exposure In my opinion the most challenging and also most impressive part was the cultural difference between Uganda and Germany. This is really worth to experience and more than recommendable!

About NPS

Net Promoter Score AIESEC’s commitment to creating high-quality, impactful experiences motivates a constant drive for us to continue to improve our operations. This year, to empower a more dynamic response to feedback, AI began to test the use of Net Promoter Score to evaluate programme participant satisfaction. The Net Promoter Score is a customer loyalty metric that can be used to gauge the loyalty of an organisation’s customer relationships. It is based on a simple question based on a scale of 0-10, “How likely are you to recommend this experience?” Pilots are currently underway in a nmuber of entities including Uganda .

NPS is based on the fundamental that organization’s customers can be divided into three categories: Promoters, Passives, and Detractors. Why? •Why customer care is relevant? People living na ELD Programme want to be satisfied with the experience. Caring about them will help us identify delivery bottlenecks making us more fast-responding towards our “customer” needs. •Why we do fire-fighting? Credibility is about people trusting on our organization. To be trusted by whoever lives an AIESEC ELD Programme, we must take care of any problems that must appear, this is called fire-fighting. By “extinguishing” this fire, we can eliminate possible detractors. Must-Read: Quality Promise Wiki

HOW DOES IT WORK? AI is partnering with CG ( Customer Guage) for an IT system, all participants in all programs ( Matched, realised and Completed) are sent a survey to assess how their experience was with one of the ELD Programs ( GCDP, TLP,TMP,GIP) Every Pilot Country / Entity has a country Login and then the MC is suppossed to create the Local Chapter Logins.
