Charlotte Rossouw

[Scroll down for English] Wie is Charlotte? Ek het grootgeword in Sasolburg, maar meeste van my mensword in Centurion ondergaan. Ek het toerisme geswot en nooit daarin gewerk nie, ‘public relations’ geswot en nooit daarin gewerk nie, ‘recruitment’ gedoen wat ek nooit geswot het nie, ‘draughting’ geswot en daarin gewerk en nou doen ek sendingwerk. So ietsie van elke windrigting as mens dit maar kan sê, oordat die een nie regtig te doen het met die ander nie.

Ek het ‘n hart vir mense (my ‘Mami’ het altyd gesê ek het ‘n hart soos ‘n minibus – altyd plek vir nog een), en weens die feit dat ek al te doen gekry het met my deel van hartseer, egskeiding en trauma sal ek graag daarin wil kan berading gee, maar nie ekslusief nie. Daarom het ek ook as deel van my agtergrond pastorale narratiewe berading studeer.
Ek help ook deeltyds met die fondswerwing en bemarking by Coram Deo. Deel van die feit dat ek ‘n hart vir mense het, wil ek sien dat meer mense die geleentheid kry om hulle stories te kom vertel. Dit is die manier hoe mense hulle verhale vertel wat vir hulle betekenis gee. En dan wil ek nie hê finansies moet die enigste rede wees hoekom hulle nie hierdie betekenis kan ontgin nie.

Who is Charlotte?

I grew up in Sasolburg, but ‘found’ myself in Centurion. I studied several things including tourism and public relations (which I never worked in), I worked in recruitment (but never studied it), draughting which I both studied and worked in but now work in missions.

I have a passion for helping people (when I was younger my Mom used to say I have a heart like a minibus, always space for one more.) I have had my share of heartbreaks, including trauma and divorce, and would like to help people in that field but not exclusively. Following this story and my passion for helping people I completed my studies in Pastoral Narrative Counselling and as part of further training I also offer counselling services.

Yet it cannot stop there. Helping one person is wonderful, helping more is even better. Therefore I also assist with fundraising and marketing at Coram Deo. Part of being a carer is that I want to see people get the opportunity to work through their stories in healing way. Regrettably sometimes finances stand in people’s way to get help. Part of my contribution is to see if we can solve this riddle. While it is not always possible to get rid of the barriers, we sure try.
