Celebrating Women in Engagement – Babsy Makombe
Babsy started being involved in Community Engagement in 2012 when she joined a community project run by Stenden SA University. The project was based in her home town, Port Alfred. She volunteered in a computer center opened by the University where she taught computer skills. She says that she saw this as an opportunity to contribute and be part of a programme that would make a difference in people’s professional careers. After her involvement at the center she came to Makhanda and joined GADRA Education in 2014, where she now works as the Administrative and Advocacy Manager.
