For My Parents

My name is Lhamotso and I am 22 years old. I have had very little education and so I have never had a job where I can earn a good income. My family relies on our livestock to survive but last winter was really heavy snow and five of our cattle were trapped. We couldn’t do anything about it. This devastated my family.

I joined the My First Job program in 2020 and am grateful for the devotion of the teacher to teach me the skills and knowledge to be a chef. The restaurant that I did my internship at, is now where I work. I am glad that I can have a nice place to work, that I am now financially independent, and will be able to support my parents in their old age.

Lhamotso is just one of the many young women the My First Job Assistant Chef Program has helped acquire new skills and lay down a foundation for future employment.

Thank you to Zuru, SWIS, GPA Global and the Captivating Annual Charity Auction, for making this possible.
