Meet our MENtors team
Farai Nyamavuvu - MENtor
I grew up in a loving family in a small rural village in the Eastern province of Zimbabwe. I studied to be a teacher following in the footsteps of my father and have been a teacher for over twenty years now. My mother played an important role in nurturing me to be a God fearing and principled man. I moved to South Africa in 2007 and I have taught at a couple of schools in the Eastern Cape province. I am passionate about my job and bond really well with my learners.
I am married with two kids. I believe education and following the principles of God can help break down social ills like broken homes and women abuse and empower our boys to grow into responsible citizens, fathers and husbands. Being a part of the character company has given me an opportunity to do my part in standing in the gap and contribute in raising boys with absent fathers to be good men.
