The Cool Dad Foundation was established in 2012 by Bongani Luvalo and a network of friends in KwaThema to facilitate, promote, educate, advocate and support a culture of positive fatherhood by engaging with fathers and reminding them of their fundamental responsibility towards their kids. Their vision is to grow into a nationally recognised network of fathers with a passion for fatherhood in order to address the social ills stemming from absent fathers and reinstate the image of the man and the dignity of fatherhood in society. The Foundation relies heavily on the sponsorship and support it receives from the public and caring companies in order to keep delivering it programmes in the community.
