i4118 Foundation’s vision is to help raise young boys and girls, growing up with absent fathers or positive adult Role Models, to be good men and women with strong values through participation in a long term, activities-based, Mentorship programme.
i4118 Foundation's primary goal is to mentor young boys and girls to become good men and women. We believe that through long term mentorship we can nurture a future generation of men and women who will be committed to positive family and community values.
Currently more than 65% of
children in South Africa are growing up in single parent homes. If you consider the significant role that a dad plays in the lives of children to establish a value system, set discipline and give a sense of identity, then you can understand why more than 80% of prisoners come from homes with absent fathers or no positive male role models and why South Africa is considered the rape capital of the world!
Offering a personalised mentorship “service”
We build strong relationships that allow us to speak into the lives of the boys and girls and their moms as we get to hear and see more and more of the challenges they face.Whilst we cannot change the circumstances or environment our boys and girls live in we can help them to learn how to make better decisions, to cope with their circumstances and break the behaviour cycles that bind them.
