Lyn

 Lyn van Rooyen
 Director and Project Manager for CARIS

 

Lyn is a passionate Johannesburger with a background in nursing and business consulting.

She became involved in the work of CABSA through a needs analysis in 2004, and bought into the vision of CABSA to such an extent, that she can not imagine herself working in any other position.

The most exciting function of CABSA is enabling Christians to do what God has called them to do in the field of HIV and AIDS more efficiently and effectively. 

She is married to Jan, and have three (adult) children and one very precious grandchild. She is passionate about gardening, mostly with indigenous plants, loves cross-stitch embroidery (but seldom have time for this!) and reads compulsively (an ideal prerequisite for this job!).  

You can reach her here.

Or at the CARIS office.

Kundai Marufu

Finance and Donor Management Office

Born and raised in Zimbabwe in a family of seven. Having grown up in the community, which was facing many challenges socially and economically, I rediscovered my passion to help when I enrolled at the University of Fort Hare to study Bsc Social Work. After completion and during the course of the studies I realised that most communities were lacking ideas towards sustainability and empowerment with resources at their disposal. This motivated me to further my studies in the field of Business Management.

After completion of my studies, I worked with different communities and NGOs in the areas of community development both as a volunteer and as an employee. I ventured into Business Consulting, which I did not work for a long time because I believe it was not my calling. In 2014, I joined Sparrow Rainbow Village (Children’s home for children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS) and it was then that I became passionate working with communities and individuals who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. I joined CABSA in April 2017 as a Finance and Donor Management Officer.

 


Nonceba Ravuku

NcebiMy name is Nonceba Maud Ravuku. I am from Soweto. 

My journey with CABSA started in 2008 when I worked at the CARIS office as a office assistant, this was the best opportunity to be trained as a facilitator and I have grown tremendously and have been part of the training team many times. I always learn from facilitators I meet about their experiences. My journey with HIV though started in the early 90s. 

 I enjoy working with youth and church leaders.

 I have a beautiful daughter, I love reading, I love interacting with different people from different backgrounds.

Regional Representatives 2015

What is a CABSA representative?
CABSA has people who 'represent' the organisation in many different ways; Staff, Board and Management Committee members, Facilitators etc.

A special group within the orgaisation is the people we call 'representatives'.

Representatives:
One of the ways in which CABSA, a small organisation with limited resources, expands our capacity is through part time and ad hoc agreements with CABSA Representatives.  CABSA representatives are trained Churches, Channels of Hope facilitators who share CABSA’s dream of caring Christian communities, ministering reconciliation and hope in a world with HIV and commit to assist the organisation in various ways.These are not CABSA employees, but volunteers or people with whom we 'contract' for a few hours a month.

A CABSA regional representative is a member of the CABSA mentoring team who is specifically allocated to build and maintain relationships with a group of facilitators from a specific region. Lead trainers of the CABSA Churches, Channels of Hope programme represents CABSA in a special way during training. All CABSA representatives may also from time to time represent CABSA at events and in initial discussions with other organisations and networks.

CABSA regional representatives will contact trained facilitators in the area they represent and will offer them support.  You are also welcome to contact your regional representative if you need any support, encouragement, prayer or other guidance.

What if there is no CABSA representative in the province or region I stay?
We aim to identify a CABSA representative for all the regions in Africa where there is a cluster of trained facilitators. However, this is not always possible. If you need any assistance or support you are most welcome to contact Aneleh Fourie-Le Roux, the mentor coordinator, with your requests and needs.

Meet your Regional Representatives......
First, meet them all together, with Aneleh, Jerry and Lyn at the capacity building weekend in January 2011:



And now you can meet the rest of them individually!

I work in the Department of Education, in the Section called Inclusive Education in which we are giving support to the learners experiencing barriers to learning. I am a Life Skills, HIV & AIDS master trainer and a Coordinator for Life Skills in the District. I have been training since 1998.
In 2007 I was trained as a CABSA Facilitator. This gave me a new perspective of HIV & AIDS because I then started to look at it with the eyes of heaven. It pushed me into the Bible where I found my responsibility as a Christian.
The advantage of being a CABSA facilitator is that, the organization supports, empower and gives you all the tools you need for the work. I am proud of being part of CABSA their information is always updated and I use it whenever I am given a platform to say or do anything on HIV & AIDS.

Friends of CABSA

What is a CABSA Friend?

Many individuals, organisations and congregations have been supporters of CABSA through the years. They share CABSA’s Vision and guiding principles; pray for the organisation, the staff, programmes and activities; are ambassadors of the organisation and her vision; support the organisation financially and through “in-kind” donations of goods, services and time; and in some cases commit to regular financial support. Although this financial support from Friends is extremely valuable to CABSA in these times of economic instability, this is not a requirement, and all forms of support is valuable.

Why is this Necessary?

This support enables CABSA to assists faith leaders and organisations in their response to HIV and to serves many people – especially people living with HIV. As we expand our basis of support, we will also be able to expand the number of individuals, congregations and organisations to whom we provide our services free or at minimal cost.

Through the “Friends of CABSA Commitment” CABSA honours, formalises and expands these valuable relationships.

How can I be Involved?

We would like to invite individuals, congregations and organisations to join this core group of Friends of CABSA. 

If you would like to join us in creating caring Christian communities, ministering reconciliation and hope in a world with HIV, contact Lyn for an application form.

Rev Konsapi died in January 2014 after a long struggle with cancer.

Rev Konsapi, formerly from URCSA Mbekweni, played a pivotal role in the Regional Synod Cape in various commissions.

Matsheliso Angeline Ntahane. August 2012

Ian Rushton shares the following:

Me Matsheliso Angeline Ntahane was laid to rest on 4 August 2012 in Manyatseng, Ladybrand, Eastern Free State.  Lovingly known as either 'Tshidi' or 'Angelina' to so many, she was a CABSA Channels of Hope facilitator and shelter of support and protection for many people in all kinds of need, often putting her own needs and difficulties into the background. She leaves her sons Molefi and Mpho, as well as Paballo whom she took under her wing. Tshidi herself was full of life and enduring courage and was a life giver to many. Her portrait says it all. She will be sorely missed.

The day after his death Logy Murray wrote: “Prof Attie was vir my so 'n spesiale persoon - as individu, as leier by die Kollege, en veral as 'n besonder vennoot en mentor by CABSA.  Dit voel regtig vir my of CABS se "pa" oorlede is!  Ek sal hom altyd onthou vir iemand wat met begrip en deeglikheid kon luister - ook agter woorde kon "hoor" - iemand wat ons visie by CABSA volledig gedeel het, en met toewyding tyd gegee het om drome te laat waarword.”
