WoF made my dream come true

10 Feb,2016Profiles

Prior to joining Working on Fire, Christinah Raboroko was unemployed and envied her friends who were working and didn’t know if her dream of owning a car would ever come true. She joined WoF as a firefighter at Tzaneen in 2007 and in 2009 she was given an opportunity to attend a Crew Leader Type 2 training  which she passed.

Christinah‘s passion for her work combined with hardwork and her respectful personality contributed to her being selected to do a Crew Leader Type 1 course in 2014 and she passed the training and was promoted to Type 1 Crew leader position.

WoF through its Skill Development leg empowers its participants with courses which contribute positively in their daily lives. During Christinah’s career development, one of the courses that she attended included Personal Finance Management; where participants are taught and advised on how to stretch their stipends to ensure that they cater for all their needs.

Today Christinah is a proud owner of a beautiful car which she purchased in October 2014. Christinah is now working towards her second goal of having her own house. With WoF anything is possible if you work harder. Thank you WoF for changing Christinah’s life.
