Character for Life improves
and enriches the lives of everybody who buys into the concept and chooses
transform their lives with the help of Christ-based character building
and values. Everyone who's fortunate to be exposed
to this program is provided with a strong guideline for ethical behavior
and a better life.
To put it simply, this program offers to each individual the opportunity
to make better choices that will serve as a positive
inspiration in their lives. The outcome is to live like Jesus: Trustworthy,
Respectful, Responsible, Fair, Loving, and the
Best Example. Just like Him.
Character for Life basically consists out of two components: it's an
educational framework by which universal but
Christ-based values are made practical in everyday life. It is also
a company that results in a national coalition of
organisations when individuals and communities take hands to build the
moral revival of our country.
Character for Life is a non-profit and impartial organization that is
not bound to any specific sector. The values of the
character building program go beyond all boundaries with regards to
culture, language, religion, gender and age. It is not
a curriculum, an optional extra, or a quick fix to solve our country's
problems. It is a process of character training that
addresses each unique situation with values, and, with positive transformation,

Where does Character Transformation come from? In 1992, the Josephson
Institute for Etiquette in Colorado, USA,
founded the organization, 'Character Counts'. The organization then
launched a program called 'The Six Pillars of
Character'. Due to the universal nature of the program, it started enjoying
international attention, and so the South African
version, Character Transformation, was born. The concept of 'Six Pillars
of Character' was kept, but the program was
adjusted to fit within a South African and now also Christian context.
THE SIX PILLARS OF
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.
The pillars, or values, have been colour
coded to make associations easy. Each value is implemented in a unique
way to meet the needs of whichever situation.
The training is the
most important and yet the most enjoyable part of the program. It entails
the facilitation of information
and not just the mere sharing of it. Group efforts and various media
also form a part of it. At the end of the program,
there will be a discussion with regards to the implementation of the
course, during which a team will be assembled to
manage and oversee the process and progress. The needs of the congregation
or family will be identified, evaluated and
maintained to ensure positive results. The whole program and costs involved
include the workshop, its material, and an
DURATION OF THE PROGRAMME:
The initial workshop is 8 hours long, after which the implementing continues
for more or less a month, depending on
the needs of the congregation or family. Follow-up sessions will also
be arranged with management.
Character Transformation assists the church and all the families as
needed. In due time, there will also be an interactive
website where individuals can exchange ideas as well as all the small
miracles which they have experienced.
