Bertha is the Programme Manager for Ithemba Labantwana, a programme of Rays of Hope that focuses on orphaned and vulnerable children in the community of Alexandra. The programme focus has shifted from just focusing on the child to now focusing on the whole family to preserve, sustain and stabilise families in the community.

Although Zimbabwean, Bertha has a passion for making a difference in Alexandra, where she has lived and worked since 2011. A teacher by background, Bertha is doing her final year of a B.A Social Work degree.

Bertha is married and has two biological children and four foster children whom she adores. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking on the fire, reading and listening to music.
