South Africa needs real men and real fathers.

These great South African men have taken The Real Man Pledge. Join us in this nation building conversation. #RealManRealDad

The Dad Book


As a father you are the most powerful man in your children’s lives. You are your daughter’s first romance and your son’s first hero. What you do with this incredible privilege will shape your children’s beliefs about themselves and the world and largely determine the trajectory of their lives. It’s never too late to step up to the plate and be the father your children need.

DAD offers profound insight into manhood and fatherhood. It provides practical wisdom on how to be a great father and live with authentic masculinity. It gives men the understanding and knowledge they need to be the kind of father every child deserves to have. Filled with cutting edge relevance and rich, real life experiences, DAD will move you, entertain you and equip you with invaluable tools to father your children.

  • Deep Crisis calls for Radical Action

    Rape and violence against women and children is a deadly cancer festering in the psyche of our nation and unless we take radical action to destroy it, it will destroy us.
