On the 12th of June we held our fortnightly CWD NNI dialogue with the community of Tafelsig.
The topic was unemployment, something that affects the entire community.

” What I am hearing about SA: Poverty. An education that does not prepare young people. Complete loss of power when formal employment is not forthcoming.
What I saw at the end of the dialogue: 3 ladies energised the meeting like if the room was full. They were unstoppable. 
Actions: look for job.
Accountability: They mentioned the person who will keep them accountable but they will also meet to check how they are doing” – NNI Special Agent Sylvester

The ages ranged from 18 to 70 odd years of age, and the group used the platform to share and the dialogue was like one unit, and one voice could not believe how much she spoke, claiming that she is usually shy.

One voice felt happy, a little sad, proud and relief when she revealed her journey of kicking her drug habit and mentioned that she is struggling and not fully recovered. Another voice shared her mastectomy and the disastrous effects of chemo treatment and one voice felt that her “problem – unemployment” was not as big or what others are facing.

At the end of the session – the NNI is absolutely necessary in all communities and we want more …… ” – NNI FiT Amina

NNI FiT Dave facilitated this session.

Some of what was said:
“It makes me want to look into myself and let go”

“We all got to understand each other better.”
