Faces of UNICEF: Yalalttsetseg Tumurbaatar, Operations Assistant, UNICEF Mongolia

Tell us a bit about yourself? What do you do?
I’m Yalalt. I work as an operations assistant in UNICEF Mongolia. I oversee all the payments and other finance and accounting related tasks in the office. I started working for UNICEF since March 2015. I majored in finance and accounting. Before joining UNICEF, I worked for PWC Audit Mongolia as an auditor. So I came to UNICEF from business sector to follow my passion to help others.

What’s your working day like?
My working day is usually a busy one. That’s why I do weekly and daily planning and make a list of priorities, what is important and what I need to finish for the day/week. Since financial tasks include regular activities and compliance to rules, it is important to be well organized and to prioritize so I can complete everything as I plan.  Because I believe that good planning leads to better outcomes.

       Imagine a girl walking back home from school on a cold winter evening in the outskirts of the city. It’s already dark outside, and the road is only lit by the dim light of moon. Dogs are barking, yet nowhere to be seen. The road is dangerous for anyone, let alone children. Two years ago that was the reality for 15 year-old Batchimeg, on her way back home from school.
