DreamWorker News & Views August 2015
DreamWorker Link of Love newsletter
As the world once again honoured the late Nelson Mandela on 18 July with 67 minutes of community work, we at DreamWorker know that helping the unemployed into work opportunities is our gift of pure love, day after day after day.

For almost 7 years now, we have worked continuously to help the unemployed of Madiba’s beloved South Africa.

So it is with great pride that we can shout out this happy message.
 
ONE MILLION DAYS OF WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED!

 
Every single day a person who has been interviewed and has registered with us goes out to work, we call it a workday.  One day of work. One person. And then one more.
 
Until we reach a million!

That is how we can all make a difference to the future of this country. One small moment and then another.

And in so doing, add a little more shine to the colours of our Rainbow Nation! << Read more >>

It has been our delight to assist a large number of candidates to join the Feedem Pitseng Learnership programme. One such candidate is Zukiswa (Zukie) Kaspile who grabbed the opportunity to “Learn and Earn” with both hands.

“I have always loved learning new skills and have taken up plenty of short term opportunities recently. While I have been unable to gain full time employment, I have used the time to learn more.That is how I gained my code 8 drivers licence and did some basic computer and office admin courses too. I really love cooking, so this opportunity to do a one year learnership in this field was so exciting for me” she explains. Employer, Elmarie Louw was delighted with the service she received from DreamWorker, while recruiting her new candidates. << Read more about Zukie here >>

CEMENTING HIS FUTURE
 

Nhlanhla Kheswa has always enjoyed working with his hands. He began his career as a plumbing assistant but like so many South Africans, found himself retrenched and unable to find more employment. He decided to return to college and study Electrical Engineering part time and it was while on campus that he heard about the Worklink/DreamWorker programme and registered for work.

LENDING A HELPING HAND HAS ITS OWN REWARDS




When Paul Jumaad and Muneeb Johnson joined DreamWorker as volunteers post their Chrysalis Training programme in 2014, little did they realise what gifts lay hidden in their offering to help.





Meet Paul:
 
Paul is now on a full time 12 month learnership with the Red and Yellow School of Advertising and Marketing and loving every minute. “This is an awesome opportunity and an awesome agency. I am loving every aspect of the course, but mostly graphic design, which I hope to take further after I graduate. I have learned so much, become much more responsible in my own life and discovered my creativity, my passion for design and boosted my self esteem hugely. In fact, I can now even stand and present in front of large groups!”


Meet Muneeb:
 
Muneeb has joined DreamWorker fulltime. As a volunteer, he soon proved himself indispensable to the DreamTeam, helping with sourcing, administration and his personal favourite, all IT related issues. It was always his secret wish to stay on fulltime and that is exactly what he has manifested. << Read more about Muneeb >>


Meet Nicole:

When Nicole Davids completed her training at Chrysalis she was initially placed as a volunteer in another organisation, but her first choice was always DreamWorker. She was therefore delighted to receive a call that a space was available for her.

AGEING GRACEFULLY, THANKS TO LINK OF LOVE

 
It was a chilly day, but hearts were warm as Tania Bownes and some DreamTeam helpers treated the “oldies” at Ryburg Terrace and their regular, unemployed assistants, to a morning of Ageless Grace. 10 unemployed ladies take good care of the people of Ryburg terrace every month, thanks to ongoing donations to DreamWorker’s Link of Love programme. What a true “Link of Love”.
