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.

The problem that we face in our country is far bigger than the solution that we can offer so changing the mindset of people out there is a huge priority for us.  The more awareness we create of the impact of absent fathers on our families and society, the more people will start paying attention and the more attention they pay, the more solutions we will have.  There is a quote by Albert Einstein that I just love and live by and it says; “this world is not a dangerous place because of those people who do harm, it is dangerous because of those people that look at it and do nothing”. 

That is the message that we want to get out there - to everyone - men and woman - each one of us can be a Fatherhood Ambassador and each one of us can in some way, big or small, contribute to raise a generation of better men and we can surely all agree that this is something that we desperately need - more men that are prepared to stand up for what is right, stand up against what is wrong and live by a certain set of values that make our communities a safer place to walk in - especially for woman and children!
