Mapule reveals some of her insights below.
As a child, what I loved most about school was teaching my friends after school.
The management role I play for Class Act involves running a community centre, which includes an ECD centre (Early Childhood Development) AND a drop in centre!
Something I have learnt about management from Class Act is how to multi-task more effectively and manage a multi-activity project.
Class Act practices that I continue to use are administration tools. Class Act have helped me grown my computer skills, and they continually emphasize and encourage accurate record keeping. Both of these practices have proved valuable time and again.
One day I plan to start a community development project in my home village.
In order to transform I need to work hard and set achievable goals.
I draw inspiration from the women directors of Class Act - from their hard work ethic to their love for development and community.
