Meet our social workers: Agnes Phora (FCIA Vrede)

I completed my Grade 12 at Nala Secondary School in Thabakhubedu in 2004.

In 2008 I received a certificate in Health care work from Health Icon Nursing College. From 2015 -2019, I was enrolled for my Bachelor of Social Work degree at UNISA. Currently I am busy with my B.A. Honours Degree in Psychology.

Since August 2020 – December 2020 I was employed as a Social Worker at Tshwane leadership Foundation- Lerato House Child and Youth Care Centre.

I did social work as a volunteer at the following places:

  • Nazareth house – Waterkloof, Pretoria (March – September 2016)
  • Zanempilo Home based care – Atteridge, Pretoria (March – September 2017)
  • Tshwane leadership foundation (February – August 2018)
  • G. Oosterlig (March – July 2020 – I also helped with Covid 19 projects during this time)

 

I started my journey with VVA Vrede on 1 May 2021.

What makes me tick?

There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life.

Adding a value for someone in a tangible way is a big thing that gets me up in the morning. I like to be able to work on something, see and measure the results and understand the impact it has on people, myself and my employer.
