One of our biggest challenges in the current education system is the lack of values based intervention through MENtorship. It does not serve our society well to educate without developing strong character in our future leaders.
This one of a kind 5 values pencil bag is the start of laying a foundation for a values based society. Our Christmas initiative gives you the opportunity this year to purchase a pencil bag for a boy that is currently growing up without a dad and with no positive male role models in his life.
What better Christmas gift than giving your family and friends a certificate showing that you have purchased a 5 values pencil bag for someone on their behalf.
This one of a kind pencil case does not only help keep all pens, pencils, highlighters and 30cm ruler together in one place, it is also a great reminder of the 5 values that make our society a better place.
If you would like to own one of these collector’s items yourself, place your order below. Please note that you will have to arrange the collection of your pencil bag from our offices or selected MENtors across South Africa.
At the Character Company we take our coffee seriously and we believe that life is too short to drink bad coffee. Raising boys to be good men takes a lot of different things, coffee being one of them.
We also strongly believe that the non profit sector needs a different approach to fundraising and enterprise development should be explored as an option whenever possible. So, when we were approached by BRU Coffee in Krugersdorp with an opportunity to combine all of these aspects we did not have to think too long.
The result is the Character Company’s very own coffee brand called Mnandi Roast. Mnandi means “lekker” in Zulu and it is a blend of 5 different coffee beans that represent the Character Company’s 5 values. Our 5 values blend is our approach to support boys with absent fathers and no positive male role models to get to camp through a value exchange initiative where every cup of coffee that you enjoy is one sip closer to make the world a better place.
All the profits of our Mnandi Roast Coffee goes directly towards supporting the work of the Character Company and every 3kg sold sponsors a boy for a camp.
