The Character Company has changed my son Stander's life dramatically since his dad passed away 6 years ago.
Helping him cope with his loss while also teaching him the values that he needs to become a man that anyone can look up to.
As a grieving mother and in the absence of his father I could not have made Stander what he is today without the help of TCC. He has changed from being a 4 year old confused and quiet little boy who was sometimes depressed at such a young age to being a spontaneous, happy 11 year old boy with all the confidence he needs and with so much compassion and love for others. And he is only one of many many boys with the same or similar story to tell. Boys who have been helped tremendously by TCC. I feel that as as a SOCIETY we should support such a beautiful cause. Helping boys becoming great men!
The Character Company
The Character Company is a long term mentorship programme for young boys growing up with absent fathers - raising boys to be good men. Other than the weekly and monthly programmes, holiday camps and “one-on-one” intervention we also focus on support for single mothers and raising awareness of the impact of absent fathers on our families and society.
