development work. After more research and introspection Nisha decided to move from Durban to the Eastern Cape so that she could gain more experiece in development work. Coming from an Apple background, has required a rapid learning curve to understand the new concepts in Windows based programmes and Linux based systems from the technical aspects. Hilltop is fortunate to have such a brillant person join the team. Nisha with her education, skills and talents has definately added value to the department in a gentle and mature way. A person with a passion for people and finding solutions for helping the poor, wanting to understand the challanges, allows for a blend of seriousness, maturity and generally, an all around good feeling, when in her presense. She has demonstrated excellent communication skills in the way she relates to the staff, villagers and visitors at the centre. Thank you Nisha for allowing us the honor to work with you, it is clear with your presense more can be achieved in a very professional and sustainable way.
