Mentor A boy Child hosted their first event in Diepkloof Hall in Soweto on Youth Day June 16 2017, to announce their formation and to conduct a test event to establish the basis for such an organisation. About a hundred young men arrived at this venue to hear from successful men from across walks of life, who grew up and succeeded in similar environments as them. The speakers included the likes of Mr. Greg Maloka (MD: Kaya FM), Mr Ciko Thomas (CEO: Retail & Business banking at Nedbank), Mr. Tshepo Phakathi (Entrepreneur and founder of StartUp Soweto) etc. This was followed with one-on-one speed-dating mentorship with all the ‘mentors’ present. Mr. Mbhele & Mrs Mpho Masondo (co-founders) set the scene at the beginning of the event to explain why the organisation was formed.
