With 23 base teams and 603 firefighters in the Mpumalanga province, Social Development Practitioner Condrick Mukhudwani says career development tops the list of things to achieve in 2017.

“As WOF continues to assist in poverty alleviation and job creation across the country through the programme, my priority for this year is to ensure our participants progress through the ranks from firefighter level,” says Mukhudwani.

Mukhudwani adds, “Because most of our participants come from marginalised communities, my aim this year is to encourageButhelezi wearing his graduation gown them to study further in order to secure a better future.

“As par t of the social development programme, I will also facilitate knowledge skills workshops covering workplace conflict resolution, relationship problems as well as family-related topics,” he says. The WOF programme is founded on providing extensive, high-level fire skills training, various specialised training and life skills training, and Mukhudwani says life skills training is his top priority in 2017.
