Women must stand firm and not allow themselves to be held back

For 46 year old Crew Leader, Lydia Goba, at the Stutterheim Team, her passion to make a contribution in saving the environment has been her key source of strength over the past ten years since she has been in the Working on Fire programme.

“When I joined the programme more than ten years ago there was a strong believe that fire fighting was just for men but through the opportunities provided to me and many other women we were able to show that we could stand our ground on the fire line. We refused to be deterred by the toughness of the fitness tests, physical exercises and the difficult terrain we had to work as fire fighters”, said Lydia.

“The programme has changed my life for the better and my women’s month message is that women must not allow themselves to be held back”.
