Tumelong Staff Profiles (Nov 2012)

Lucas Mthembu
I have been working at Tumelong now for 4 years, I am from Temba where I live with my wife and young son. I am the Siyafundisa (Peer Education Programme) coordinator, this involves working with issues related to sexuality, risky behaviours, gender, the advantage of abstinence, consequences of sexual activity, HIV and Aids, substance abuse and basic decision making. I also run the Care and Relief programme, assisting the poor and deprived with food, clothes, blankets, school uniforms and other basic needs, with an aim to ensure these people become self sufficient in the future.
I really enjoy working with young people, it is my passion to make a diffenrence to their lives. Working for Tumelong Mission gives me the opportunity to impact the future of our young people in the community and I find the work at times frustrating but always in the end rewarding.

Matshediso Mtshweni
I have been with Tumelong since 2007, as an HIV/Aids programme officer. In 2009 we entered into a partnership with the Society for Family Health and I became the team leader for the New Start programme dealing with HIV counselling and testing. Recently now in 2012 I was asked to do fund raising and coordinate Friends of Tumelong which is a group of Parish representatives looking at the best interests of Tumelong – you too can be a friend!
If you need help dealing with gender challenges, I am here!
