Earning for his Future Learning!
Themba Gumede hails from Boboyi, a rural area 8 kilometres outside Port Shepstone. He attended Nobamba High School, in that area and achieved his Grade 10 in 2004.
Themba has had seven years of working experience. Three were spent at Jet Stores, where he worked as a merchandiser and four at Morkels Furniture Stores as a salesperson.
In March 2013 he read about the Worklink Centre in an article in the South Coast Fever. This prompted him to register with DreamWorker It was not long before he was sent for an interview to Bargain Wholesalers in Marburg, where he was successfully appointed on a permanent basis as a merchandiser once again.
Themba is so grateful that he read the article and acted. “My mom is unemployed and having some work has really enabled me to support her, as well as my child”.
Although he thoroughly enjoys what he doing at present, Themba has a long term dream…..he would like to study Occupational Health& Safety through UNISA and feels that having work at the moment is taking him one step closer to helping him save towards achieving this goal.
“I have always loved helping people. At school I really enjoyed biology and learning about the human body. Last year I attended a short course on the duties of being a Basic Ambulance Assistant. I really hope that I can work hard and save hard, so that I can begin my studies soon. And get my driver’s licence too…which is a must!”.
(We at DreamWorker Port Shepstone wish you well on your quest Themba……and maybe, just maybe, somebody reading this post will offer some financial assistance too!).
