CHAIR OF ADVISORY BOARD
The Territorial Advisory Board was established to support TSA with strategic guidance on our National operations and service.
Major Carin Holmes (Public Relations Secretary) went along to Ms. Mukoki’s offices to ask her a few questions.
Q. Please tell us a little about the real Johanna
I am a mother of 2 teenagers, a wife, an absolute extrovert who loves to travel. I am also a successful business woman (current business woman of the year) with many business accolades.
Q. How did you get involved with TSA?
My late mother-in-law was a Salvationist, and she was the one who introduced me to TSA. I started serving and still am on the Strathyre Board – I love Strathyre Girls Home – it is my favourite project. I invest in young woman, and I’m currently sponsoring two girls who stay at the Halfway House. The Half-way house was established to help girls leaving child and youth are centres having completed matric but still needing some help settling into the community. I’ve have also employed girls from Strathyre, one is still with me and doing exceptionally well.
Q. Why is it important for successful people like yourself to be part of and get involved with NGO’s?
“To whom much is given – much is expected” All success should be used for the greater good. NGO’s require the skills that we, as business people, have to be successful in the running of their programmes, which are necessary for the healing of our society.
Q. What message do you have for Salvationists in TSA in SA?
I have two
1. TSA plays a very pivotal role in being the bridge between the disparity that has been created by the economic climate and attracting the corporates and individuals to jointly hold hands in narrowing the gap between the have and the have not’s.
2. God is always at the centre at what we do as Salvationists and we must not lose heart if the task looks too much because ultimately, as the Bible says, “where two or three are gathered there God is present and we will overcome. So don’t grow weary in doing good.”
