abandofbrothers was established in 2008 by men committed to positive social change through personal development and community building. It serves the most vulnerable young men by inviting them to collaborate in a meaningful and common purpose. This is achieved by providing local adult men with powerful training that develops mentoring skills, emotional intelligence and enhances authenticity and confidence. The rites of passage experience we provide for young men allows them to deal with the trauma of their past. Armed with the support of a mentor and the abandofbrothers community, young men move on to live lives of purpose and meaning.
