OUR VISION IN ACTION

ENABLING PLATFORM

We facilitate Circles of Change™ (COC) in highly challenged South African Communities by establishing an enabling platform for both personal and group (culture) development using our personal values-based leadership programs based on our depth coaching methodology: THE RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUAL™ (TRI).

OUR CHANGE AGENTS

We educate Change Agents  and Champions of Change who as Role Models and Coaches facilitate dynamic change processes within prisons (rehabilitation and reintegration), schools, high-risk-communities, business and organisations - in society at large.

Our Engagement Path to unlock potential is guided by our elite team of Change Specialists

EMPOWERMENT

We support to empower our beneficiaries. We do not do it for them. We do it with them.

“Give a Man or a Women a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a Man or a Woman to fish and you feed them for a lifetime.”

The COC ignites the entrepreneurial journey of our students and a deeper discovery of their resourcefulness (unlocking potential)
