Solly Nethononda has been appointed to the position of CWSA Provincial Manager in Limpopo. He had been acting in the position since June 2010 before being promoted in January 2011. Prior to his appointment, Solly was a CWSA National Programme Coordinator responsible for Limpopo and KwaZulu Natal provinces.
Solly grew up in Limpopo and studied at the University of Venda where he graduated with a BA Degree in Social Work. Solly has worked for Agisanang Domestic Abuse Prevention and Training (ADAPT) as a Social Worker. He has also worked as Men's Programme Coordinator for the same organisation. Solly has also worked for Restorative Justice Centre as a Victim Empowerment Programme Coordinator, ICAS Southern Africa as Employee Wellness Case Manager, Civil Society Advocacy Programme (CSAP) as a Provincial Programme Coordinator and for Nestle South Africa as an Employee Wellness Coordinator.
His familiarity with Limpopo and passion for the province led CWSA management to request him to act as Provincial Manager in Limpopo in June 2010. Solly is passionate about child protection and the welfare of children.
Demographically, Limpopo is the fourth most populated province in South Africa after Gauteng, KZN and the Eastern Cape with a population of approximately 5.4 million people. Limpopo contributes the smallest number of CWSA member organizations for affiliates nationally (only one member organization). Solly has made it his mission to increase the contribution of CWSA towards child protection in Limpopo. His immediate objective is to increase the number of CWSA member organizations in the province from just one active member now to at least two organizations per district totalling at least 10 member organizations in three years.
Solly admits that this is a mammoth task which requires hard work but it is achievable.
