WHY G-FORCE?

Z

The G FORCE is the GFC ambassador programme

Z
G- force stands for Gauteng Force
Z
Why Gauteng force? Because Gauteng is known as the melting port of culture and different backgrounds. Not only across SA, but across the continent
Z
When individuals travel from across the continent from countries like Nigeria, Kenya, Cameroon, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, they explore and make a livelihood and chase possibilities.
Z
Because of this, it has become a place for melting points and ideas. It is a place where a lot of trends originate within the fashion, music, culture, sports and film areas.
Z
Gauteng has become a force – a force that influences South Africa, and the rest of the continent
Z
Filming is a medium that captures all this, and leaders in this industry enable us to not only have a grasp, but to have deep appreciation of the city of gold and lights
Z
It is because of this, we have the Gauteng Force.
