Climbing to success

18 Jun,2015Profiles

Namhla Oyisi said that joining Working on Fire was a stepping stone for her because it equipped her with skills to climb the ladder of success.

Namhla is a former fire fighter from the Katberg Team in the Eastern Cape and she joined the programme in 2013.

“After matriculating I wanted to further my studies but, couldn’t due to lack of finance. I had to look for a job to make a living,” she explained Namhla from WoF to Hat

She said that WoF gave her so many skills including fire fighting, writing and she also learnt team work and communication skills as well.

“On the 23rd of February this year there was recruitment at HAT in Katberg and I got an opportunity to get the job at HAT ,” she explained.
