Former participant lands new job

Lulama Mabhe recently exited positively from the programme after serving as a firefighter at the Krugersdorp Team.

She is now a security officer at Cook Mine 2 in Randfontein in the West Rand.

Mabhe says Working on Fire has served as a stepping stone in advancing her career.

She says the programme helped her with skills development.

“The programme brought me hope when I had no means to make a leaving. It shaped my life positively,” she says.

Mabhe used the stipend she got from the programme to pay for her learner’s licence and security training.

Mabhe, who is originally from the Eastern Cape, says her current position pays well. She urged her former colleagues to step up and look for opportunities where possible.
