We welcome Patience!
Say hello to the new member of our Office Team!
In January we welcomed Patience to DAKTARI! She was one of the local alumni who went through our alternative teaching program for post-matric students. We are very happy to have her with us and look forward to all the great things which she will do with us! Below you can read a little bit more about her... from her!
My name is Patience Ananda Moripa and I'm twenty years old. I currently work as an Environmental Monitor (EM) at DAKTARI.
I first came here as a student with other young adults who were invited to DAKTARI because we had finished high school and passed Matric, and were going to follow a career guidance program (alternative teaching program). At DAKTARI we were told that there was a position as Environmental Monitor (EM) open, and that we should write a convincing letter of motivation to apply for the job. With luck, I was the one who was chosen! As an EM I teach children with the help of the international volunteers and I also assist the Animal and Outreach Managers and the outreach manager with anything they may need. This experience has taught me to be patient and confident in myself and to able to work with people from all over the world.
This is an great opportunity to gain experience as I wish to build my future and study become and business woman in the future.
So far it has been such a great experience and I love being able to share it with all the volunteers who come from around the world.
Maybe see you soon!
