OUR VISION

OUR MISSION

Raising boys to be good men.

OUR VISION

To help raise boys to be good men with strong values, positively impacting families, communities and society, via a long-term MENtorship program.

WHAT WE DO

To achieve our goals, we focus on long-term mentoring and relationship building, instilling 5 specific values - courage, kindness, self-discipline, honesty and respect.

 

We primarily work with young boys between the ages of 5 and 10 as an intake age, but our long-term mentorship approach means that we will continue to be part of their lives throughout their school career and beyond.

  • We have weekly activities for age similar groups of no more than 5 boys at a time.

  • We have weekend activities where all the groups and sometimes families come together.

  • We have various camps throughout the year.

  • We provide a support structure for single mothers.

  • We advocate for the better treatment of women and children.

  • We run long term mentorship program for young boys with absent fathers.

OUR VALUES

Each week we discuss these 5 values with every boy in the program. We talk about them, what they mean and then we look at practical ways to make it part of our lives.

A key part of our mentoring program includes 5 core values which we believe are essential in helping a young boy become a man who's life is guided by the following:

  • Respect - to treat others and their belongings the way you want to be treated.

  • Honesty - to tell the truth even when it hurts.

  • Self Discipline - to do the right thing before someone tells you to.

  • Courage - to face your fears and conquer them.

  • Kindness. - to have a good heart.

We believe that each boy should know the 5 values, understand what they mean, understand how to practically apply them to his life and most importantly know that without Jesus is it impossible to do this. - Jaco van Schalkwyk
