Lecturer in the Community Development Programme

T: +27 58 718 5383



I am a Lecturer in the Community Development Programme, and a human scientist whose research interest is the effects of alcohol and drug use on communities. Moreover, I am a PhD candidate in Human Geography, and is keen on understanding spatial contexts of alcohol use among students in rural colleges, and the creation and meaning of spatial and social networks in these settings. As part of my Community Development portfolio, I have co-published a book chapter on ‘Promoting healthy human relationships with sub-Saharan immigrants and South Africans’. I also presented my work on ‘Teaching community development in rural South Africa’ at the 2018 Community Development Society’s international conference, which was held in Detroit. I am an advocate for social justice, and a firm believer in sustainable development, especially in underdeveloped communities. Apart from lecturing Community Development, I am a co-faculty adviser for Enactus, a student-led entity seeking to create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the centre of improving their livelihoods.
