Mentor A Boy Child was successfully launched to the media, potential donors and partners on Wednesday 19th June 2019. The well-organised event that was professionally put together to demonstrate to the attendees the strength and the credibility of the ‘new’ organisation, was attended by the who’s who of media and notable successful business people whom themselves have pledged to become mentors for the program.
The event was held in Sandton and hosted ‘pro-bono’ at the law firm Hogan Lovells building. The beautiful entertainment by a group of young boys Mofolo Melodies provided the backdrop of a very insightful line up of speakers that included a social worker specialising in the area of adolescence Mrs Khumo Kgomoeswana, the chairman of the board of the organisation Mr Sydney Mbhele, and Gavin Weale, a board member amongst others. The event marked a kick-off of the pilot program for the new cohort of 100 boys from Phafogang High School in Soweto, who were also in attendance.
