PROGRAMME

SEED OF LOVE


SEED OF LOVE is the foundation's primary program, it is a mentorship program for boys (age 6-18yrs) who seek guidance on improving and/or changing their approach on life. A subject that is fundamental to the developing society and an area where the SOW legacy disciplines are fostered and taught at length. The program is led by identified Ambassadors in the education, sports, arts culture and recreation, business or social service sector.

Under the primary program, SOW hosts 4 initiatives (SSEISAA workshop, Spread The Spirit, SOW Family Day and Mo-Shoes-4-U) that are designed to empower the boy child and create awareness on various topics that are within our scope. 

 

The current Leader and Ambassador of Seed of Love is the distinguished gentleman Dikgang "Terminator" Mabalane. Dikgang is a Businessman, Supersport Panel Analyst and former Orlando Pirates and Jomo Cosmos player . He is the 1st formal Ambassador for the program.

The ultimate goal for the program is to groom the boy-child to be a game changer and force for good in his community while relating with and complementing the independent girl-child.
