Jozi Trails is a not for profit company that manages the development and maintenance of all recreational trails along the Braamfontein Spruit. The pilot project will cover Delta Park, Emmarentia and all the trails connecting them and will expand to cover approximately 37 kilometers from Albert’s Farm to the NI in Fourways.
This includes trail maintenance to prevent environmental degradation, improved security along the spruit, the installation of signage and the design of new trails. The trails will be designed to international standards, well maintained and able to accommodate multiple user groups. We want to create a resource for the people of Johannesburg that will change the way people view the city.

The Character Company is a values-based organisation that offers an activity-based, long-term mentorship programme for young boys with absent fathers and/or positive male role models. The Character Company’s goal is to help to change South Africa’s current culture of violence and abuse through an initiative for boys helping them to grow into good men by instilling honorable values.
To achieve our goals, we focus on long-term mentoring and relationship building, instilling 5 specific values – courage, kindness, self-discipline, honesty and respect.
We primarily work with young boys between the ages of 5 and 10 as an intake age, but our long-term mentorship approach means that we will continue to be part of their lives throughout their school career and beyond.
We have weekly activities for age similar groups of no more than 5 boys at a time.
We have weekend activities where all the groups and sometimes families come together.
We have various camps throughout the year.
We provide a support structure for single mothers.
We advocate for the better treatment of women and children.
We run long term mentorship programmes for young boys with absent fathers.
