Area Programme Managers: Our Heroes in the field
Our Area Programme Managers work directly with their communities in areas identified by World Vision South Africa as the most fragile and those with vulnerable children.
Area Programme Managers are our true heroes in the field as they manage and support the Area Programmes for their designated areas to ensure that deliverables are met with good stewardship.
They are the steadfast link between organisation and community and ensure that the WVSA Area Programmes are implemented according to protocol.
Each Area Programme is crafted based on an assessment of the needs of that community within the parameters of Child Protection, Water & Hygiene, Education and Enterprise Development.
These are just some of our wonderful Area Programme Managers that diligently see to the needs of the areas they manage.
“A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman.”
Nozuko Gysman is from Middledrift in the Eastern Cape.
She says that she enjoys seeing beneficiaries build on what World Vision has supported them with and turning this into a sustainable income for themselves and their families and the community at large.
‘’Always believe in yourself and know that God is there by your side and keep exploring what may enrich your life today”.
Maite Ramoshaba hails from the Limpopo, Tzaneen, Sekororo area.
As an Area Manager, Maite gets great joy from networking with community structures and improving the lives of children.
“Be the woman who fixes another woman’s crown without telling the world it was crooked.”
Nyameka Gumede, from the Idutywa in the Eastern Cape, says that touching lives of vulnerable children by demonstrating Jesus Christ’s love and helping them reach their dreams is what she enjoys most about working for World Vision.
“There is no limit to what we, as women can accomplish.”
Lizeka Sicina from Sekegosese in Limpopo says she loves seeing the smile on a child’s face and transforming their lives for the better.
Even if she doesn’t always understand the local language, she can still see the love in their eyes when we work within the communities or when they hear back from their sponsors and receive gifts.
