A SENIOR Tongaat Child Welfare­ social worker has been selected by Rotary South Africa District 9370 out of hundreds of applications in South Africa to represent KZN and Rotary on an exchange programme internationally.

Joyclyn Jess Govender has been part of the Rotary which is an organisation that brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.

Govender will start her journey on 20 June and will spend three weeks in various areas in Switzerland.

The New Generations Service exchange programme is Rotary’s first of its kind and is funded by Rotary Switzerland and South Africa.

It is geared towards providing an opportunity to young professionals to get to know about different fields of vocation­, health, education and economic systems in the exchange country.

Govender will engage with the Swiss welfare systems to broaden her knowledge and bring back innovative interventions that may be applied to our welfare systems and communities.

She will act as an ambassador for Rotary South Africa and Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society.

“I want to encourage the youth and young professionals in the community to always remember that opportunities come to those who work hard and have faith.”

President of the Tongaat Child and Welfare Society, Harold Maistry said that the society is a leading welfare­ service provider that seeks to continually improve their services, develop their staff and empower their community.

“As a society we feel delighted that an employee from our organisation has been selected for such an auspicious opportunity and we convey our best wishes to her on her upcoming venture.

“We are proud of Joyclyn’s achievement and know she has a bright future ahead of her.”
