Hi, My name is Thabo Sifumba, I work for a self-funded NGO called The Character Company. They are running a great cause close to my heart by raising boys to be good men through long-term and intentional MENtorship throughout South Africa. I am Champion MENtor at The Character Company, I'm mentoring boys who are growing up with absent fathers or no positive male role models in their lives. With so much much happening in our country thought to myself that it's high-time we act for the better South Africa that we all want to see. Mentoring these boys will help them in becoming good men. Please allow me to invite you to donate any amount of money to the Character Company so that we can be able to help a boy to be able to do the weekly activities with his mentor and be able to camp throughout the year.
We are a group of men and women from all walks of life, concerned with the impact of absent fathers/positive male role models on our society. We are working together to raise boys to be good men with a strong sense of identity and values so that our communities can be a safer place for women and children.
With the focus on our 5 core values, we teach our boys from as young as 5 years old and mentor practical ways to make it part of our lives.
Reaching my target will mean that 10 boys will get to camp throughout the year with no worries about the camp fee, food or transportation.
The funds will help the Character Company continue to provide awesome camps for the boys.

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.
