Director and Project Manager for CARIS
Lyn is a passionate Johannesburger with a background in nursing and business consulting.
She became involved in the work of CABSA through a needs analysis in 2004, and bought into the vision of CABSA to such an extent, that she can not imagine herself working in any other position.
The most exciting function of CABSA is enabling Christians to do what God has called them to do in the field of HIV and AIDS more efficiently and effectively.
She is married to Jan, and have three (adult) children and one very precious grandchild. She is passionate about gardening, mostly with indigenous plants, loves cross-stitch embroidery (but seldom have time for this!) and reads compulsively (an ideal prerequisite for this job!).

Finance and Donor Management Office
Born and raised in Zimbabwe in a family of seven. Having grown up in the community, which was facing many challenges socially and economically, I rediscovered my passion to help when I enrolled at the University of Fort Hare to study Bsc Social Work. After completion and during the course of the studies I realised that most communities were lacking ideas towards sustainability and empowerment with resources at their disposal. This motivated me to further my studies in the field of Business Management.
After completion of my studies, I worked with different communities and NGOs in the areas of community development both as a volunteer and as an employee. I ventured into Business Consulting, which I did not work for a long time because I believe it was not my calling. In 2014, I joined Sparrow Rainbow Village (Children’s home for children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS) and it was then that I became passionate working with communities and individuals who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. I joined CABSA in April 2017 as a Finance and Donor Management Officer.
My name is Nonceba Maud Ravuku. I am from Soweto.
My journey with CABSA started in 2008 when I worked at the CARIS office as a office assistant, this was the best opportunity to be trained as a facilitator and I have grown tremendously and have been part of the training team many times. I always learn from facilitators I meet about their experiences. My journey with HIV though started in the early 90s.
I enjoy working with youth and church leaders.
I have a beautiful daughter, I love reading, I love interacting with different people from different backgrounds.
The first seeds of HIV involvement were planted in Aneleh in the early 1990s when she met Rev. Christo Greyling. Her studies in Development Studies motivated her to become involved as a volunteer with the Stellenbosch Aids Action. This led to full-time employment as Training Coordinator with this organisation.
Aneleh became a co-worker of CABSA in 2003 and is now in a part time capacity responsible for training and mentoring at CABSA. Aneleh is married to Gerhard and they live and breathe in Somerset West where they are close to the mountains and the sea!

Jan has a background in the Natural Sciences, Human Resources, Training Management and Organisations Development. Typically of the way he works, he taught himself web design in 1997 when he got fed up with web developers that did not want to share their knowledge with him.
His focus is on helping people 'understand'. He loves sharing and debating what he knows - or thinks he does - be it about organisations, strategic planning, organisation culture, change or websites. He is currently also working on processes for sharing the experiences and knowledge he gained in the business world with NGO’s, which is where the real world -changing things are happening.
