I see myself as the face of Prolit in KZN and thus conduct myself accordingly. I also see myself as the reason that clients want to renew their contracts as I make their lives easier by providing them with information that is needed as well as information that I feel they may require over and above their requests. I love working for Project Literacy as we have high morals and a wonderful work ethic. We provide a service of high quality and we do not believe in short cuts.

I like working at Prolit because I get to learn more about how to keep our clients and beneficiaries happy while delivering quality service to get the best results.
