Biography: Veronica Matsie thirty years old, and Ngele Manyanga twenty-nine years old at the time of the interview, were chosen by the care-givers group to conduct a separate interview. Both women were born and raised in Maandagshoek and after completing matric wanted to become social workers. They volunteered for the home-based care programme in the hope that they would be able to become qualified, full-time social workers, but this has not happened. They continue to see to the various social and health needs of individuals and families in the community as part of the larger group and identified HIV AIDS and lack of proper nutrition as two of the main problems.
