Nurturing future leaders by creating caring, safe, and responsible, clean environments for children, animals, and you!

We empower communities with innovative solutions that nurture economic growth, environmental stewardship, and social well-being.

Our Mission: To be honourable in all our actions.
Our Vision: To act lawfully, with compassion, creating safe and responsible environments for children, animals, and the community.

AfricaGuardian offers a groundbreaking circular economy model; even our maintenance plan is more than property maintenance; it's about stimulating local economies, promoting tradesmen's skills exchange, and enhancing food and security through recycling and composting.

Why choose Africaguardian?
  • Sustainable Property Maintenance: cost-effective upkeep and upgrades for your home, with materials +10% as the only additional expense.
  • Community Empowerment: Each subscription creates local jobs and teaches valuable skills to unemployed youth.
  • Environmental Impact: Significant reductions in pollution and waste through robust recycling and composting programs.
  • Education and Support: essential life skills, financial guidance, safety training, and more, to foster a self-reliant, knowledgeable community.

Join us to reduce pollution, crime, and domestic violence while stimulating local economies through innovative, community-oriented initiatives. Together, we can create a sustainable and prosperous future for everyone.

Let's build a better tomorrow, one community at a time.

Property, defined as movable or fixed; solid, liquid, or gas, is that which you own and are legally responsible for as a result of a transaction, gift, or in lieu of labour.

National Integrated Waste Management Act:
Prevents property from going to landfills by requiring the separation, at source and before municipal collection, of property from waste. Separate municipal collections and processing are, however, not required.

Property is broken down into three classes:

Dry property: recyclable packaging materials, community donations, and electrical discards.

Wet/Compostable property:
Your kitchen-generated property and garden-generated materials, which can be composted, are the natural growth of a protected asset.

Waste property: "the game-changer.".
Waste is defined as property that has no recoverable social, financial, or environmental value. (Not recycling, nor compost property!)

By law, waste must be disposed of in municipally provided, suitable containers, serviced by municipally appointed, waste-licensed contractors. Not us.

All of this is important because:
The constitution protects our right to own property, and if our property is being expropriated for public benefit purposes (e.g., municipal-driven, ratepayer-funded recycling programs destroying local work opportunities, and worse), compensation at a value as established in a court of law is mandated.
At municipal values of R20 000/ton, backdated to 2006 when their program began, our compensation is substantial.

As we tackle numerous nationally shared socio-economic and environmental challenges through locally focused, community-drivenmodular initiatives that reduce crime, create food security, educate, and stimulate the economy, our programmes, such as Mr. Recycle of 2001, continue to serve as Africa's empowerment models.

We present:
 the Golden Standard, the Guardian Module.
“Creating Tomorrow’s Leaders and Citizens with a Caring, Mutually Responsible, Moral Disposition” 

Our focus areas include:
 property and waste management, job creation, crime reduction, empowerment, mentorship, community upliftment, and innovative, sustainable urban farming practices.

Promoting responsible waste disposal, composting and recycling:
We hope to reduce pollution, divert property from landfills, and create job opportunities while stimulating the local economy and ensuring local food security.

Through skills training and mentorship:
 We intend to equip individuals with trade skills for employment as knowledgeable, valued assistants, and later as business owners.

We hope to mentor and integrate former non-violent offenders safely into our communities through vegetable gardening, thereby fostering reconnection, local business, and food security while innovatively reducing societal issues such as home, farm, business, and land invasions as well as violence

  Protect your peace, which includes your loved ones.
Simply put, we are providing holistic management for our communities.
Together, we can and have to.

Act with compassion and forethought to protect the planet and children. Create the opportunity for previously employable people and commercially unemployable people to work together, creating safe spaces for the youth to learn how to work with people, tools, and the environment, while building a great tomorrow for everyone. If small business owners are willing to mentor, we need to hear from you too.  Our apprentices will need to be placed, and you can do with the paid labour.

Opportunity overview, and even a simple community participation movitation.

There is no other program so simple, so inexpensive and so effective currently operating in South Africa. This program has been established with the view to being a modular system to be rolled out in every possible community, creating social, financial and environmental wealth beyond imagining for all involved, simply by sharing the opportunities created by recognizing each other as humans, and removing our property from the waste stream for responsible, organized local utilization. If there are potential funders, investors or franchise buyers interested in the bigger picture, the Guardian management is open to partnerships and investments for 3 years at 15% per annum, to drive the program like wildfire through the African countries, and the sale of Franchises. This program is the Golden Standard of Community focused, home and garden insurance that will reduce crime, stimulate the economy and provide our inalienable rights which the corrupt and inept municipal employees have tried to steal from us, contrary to their oath to the Constitution of the mother country, South Africa.

Community benefits
  1. Property, service provider management, and quality control. 
  2. Protection of tradesman skills, provided by trusted and vetted locals, using the upkeep of our properties as the schools.
  3. Creation of socio-economic and environment-friendly jobs suitable for all citizens, both in and out of the formal economy and suburbs.
  4. Waste Stream Management: Removal of property from waste at source before municipal collection.
  5. Local Processing: Clean, bagged, mixed inorganics are collected and processed locally, as are organic materials.
  6. Urban Farming: Organically grown vegetables are grown locally and sold to members at half the market price.
  7. Environmental Credits: Creation of carbon tax and landfill airspace credits to fund community programmes.
  8. Educational Opportunities: School leavers can learn administration, work, and entrepreneurship skills.
  9. Safe Learning Environment: A secure and nurturing educational environment, free from controversial external influences.
  10. Profit share: profit from the sale of processed organic and inorganic materials, in whatever form, is shared via the community Guardian digital currency, of which every citizen in the community is a registered member. 
  11. Barter: No bank charges nor taxes are payable on any community-related digital transactions using Guardian tokens, which are not legally recognised tender that can be cashed out digitally to a bank account; bank charges apply. The translation from 1 ZAR to Guardian token is R1.20c, or 20%, which covers operational overheads.

Registered marketers and organisations earn R200 per subscription and R50 a month ongoing while client participates —each fully operating module will generate R150 000 a month for the marketers to share in. Without subscribers, there is no program.

The mentors, depending on their skills and whether they provide their own tools and transport, can earn R10,000, R20,000, or even R25,000 a month.

The more money flowing locally, the better for everyone, and especially the children.

Gold Standard
The Africa Guardian Program offers a comprehensive, community-focused, nationally relevant, modular approach to community-oriented household insurance, setting a Golden Standard in the industry and life in general. 

At R3,500 for the elite, Golden Standard service, or only R1,500 for the standard, this monthly subscription program covers not just land and building maintenance, but also extends its benefits to the community and environment. 
It is truly the "best globally, at this time, in its field."

Key Features of the Africa Guardian Programme:
  1. Holistic Coverage: Provides a better standard of living for all within the wider community.
  2. Environment-Friendly Job Creation: Generates jobs outside of residential suburbs, helping to reduce crime, domestic violence, and pollution.
  3. Economic stimulation boosts the economy from the grassroots level, ensuring that money circulates back into the community, benefiting everyone. Especially the children!
  4. Cost-effective freedom: After having been a subscriber for at least a month, you will be able to benefit from any service our team can provide, at only the additional cost of materials and 10%. 
  5. Profit from the sale of recovered inorganic property bought from self-employed sorters at market rates before compaction, is shared, less 25%, amongst property donors.
By focusing on both individual needs and community well-being, the Africa Guardian Programme aims to create a safer, cleaner, and more economically stable environment for all.

Recycling collections - dry property

Recycle with ease - dry property collections. Recyclable materials; Community Donations and Electrical Discards, having easily recoverable and measurable social, financial and environmental values, are technically classed as "Dry Property." It is now illegal to dump dry property, mixed with compostable or waste materials, in the wheelie bin. Ignorance of the Law is no defence!

"From Vision to Action: Empowering Communities for a Sustainable Africa"


  • This is a last resort, where we are forced to dig out the 1.2m long, 1.2m wide x 20cm deep bed so as to ensure food security on site and cannot use the easier and quicker, more expensive raised beds.
  • Reasons for this include theft of building materials, specifically at schools and related organisations.
  • We quote per job, and only showed the cost per bed to tease you.
  • The weed barrier is securely in place before the pre-mixed compost, potting and top soil is spread. Biochar is option that we would encourage in the mixture, for long term benefits. Fortunately, the sides of the weed barrier will stand up preventing grass from easily growing into the bed.
  • The beds can be charged with magneto and electro-culture at an extra cost, if desired and viable.

Big picture thoughts

Survivalist-motivated home, farm and business invasions increase municipal income streams of property rates and sales of electricity; hurt our families and pets, and damages our property while destroying our economy and reducing VAT income generation opportunities, which the government needs to keep the lights on (if that was the intention) Are these points below actually our responsibility, or does our community-focused, inclusive, and stimulatory point of view, where "no one is left behind," require that we accept this responsibility? You just know the municipalities are killing jobs everywhere they can.
