Myen Govender - MENtor
My name is Myen Govender, I grew up in Durban and currently reside in Gauteng. I am currently employed by a global steel manufacturer where I specialise in maintenance and reliability. My interests are business and outdoor activities. I enjoy hiking, camping and fishing.
I am extremely passionate about South Africa. I have been tremendously blessed by God throughout my life and believe that it is my responsibility to be a blessing to those around me. I heard about The Character Company at church in 2019 and felt that this is something that I wanted to be involved with. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a MENtor and pray that I will be able to make a lasting positive impact my boys.
Redmond Louw - MENtor
Redmond is from Johannesburg South, where I've spent my entire life. In 2015, he was baptized and reborn, and hasn't looked back on my previous life since. He is deeply committed to our God and to serving others.
He worked in the telecommunications (ICT) industry for over ten years in a variety of capacities, including general work, middle management, and senior management. Recently, he left the corporate world to take a full-time position with the Character Company as a business development consultant.
He married his wife Daniella in 2018 and it’s the best decision he's ever made. They have two beautiful boys aged twelve and two. He loves spending time with his family, working out and doing anything that relates to the outdoors.
It was a simple decision for him to join the character company. This company represents values and principles that he admires. He believes there is a calling on his life to disciple young boys into men and to be a role model for them. He wants to be a role model for the next generation, inspiring, motivating, and encouraging them.
Kingsley Tloubatla - Regional Character & MENtor
Kingsley has worked most of his life in the Marketing Industry he possess quite a number of skills in the fields of Sales and Marketing, Information Technology and the Entertainment Industry, he has worked as Technical Support Consultant for the City of Johannesburg and also for a Pharmaceutical company. He then spent most of his work life as a Sales Rep and brand ambassador for Mobicel SA and Samsung but however, he is currently freelancing.
He was born and raised in the South of Johannesburg in Soweto. He is part of a family of five siblings, being the only son to his parents. Having an absent father was tough growing up, having to discover everything by himself, his identity and becoming a good man. He is a God fearing Christian and believes that having an intimate and consistent relationship with God should be a lifestyle for everyone.
Mpho Maifo - MENtor
Mpho Maifo matriculated in the year 2012 and immediately got the opportunity to showcase his talent at the semi-professional league in South Africa now known as the ABC Motsepe League.
He has been a semi professional footballer for the most part of his life and claims he will forever be grateful to God for the talent and experience, because if he hadn't played football at a young age he believes he wouldn't have turned out the way he did. He thinks he'd probably be indulging in negative habits like using drugs or even involved in crime, football gave him a sense of discipline, focus and staying healthy. Other than football, he has been an IFA (International Field Advertisor) which taught him more about network marketing and he also used to work on a car maintenance and repair contract at Matla Power Station in Mpumalanga.
He remembers hearing about TCC on radio n got interested and admits it was one of the best decisions of his life, because through the programme he'd be able to better the growth of boys who are growing up just like him, without fathers or positive role models so he believes this programme will cut like a double-edged sword meaning as much as it's gonna be beneficial for the boys, it will be having the same effect on him. He admits he also chose TCC because it is Godly and involves God in every way possible so this was one of the major reasons he joined because he grew up in a Christian-based household.
