Our Work

Cape Town Half Marathon 1997

Karl Flowers passed away in 2010 and in his will articulated the need for a trust to be formed which would support the learning and growth of talented youth across the areas of Academia and Arts.  The trustees agreed that this support would be shaped by Karl’s own life which you can read more about  HERE.

Throughout his life, Karl recognised, appreciated, and valued the support which was instrumental in shaping his future – from the school teacher who recognised the seeds of great potential in him to the influence of positive role models and sponsorship.  He knew what it meant to be taken into a network of individuals who informed, shared, and engaged with his values, and who extended to him the generosity of deep friendship.

This trust is tasked with doing what Karl excelled at both in his business and his personal life – finding and bringing the right people together for a common purpose.

The Karl Flowers Trust is looking for young people between the age of 16 and 25 who dream of contributing to a better world, and who have an idea about what they themselves need to be and do in order to make this  better world happen

If you are one of those young people, the time to act is now.  Please read on and contact us
