Keep A boy Child in School:
We cannot empower a girl child and neglect a boy child; we are doing injustice to the future of our upcoming generation. For as long as we focused on what men are doing wrong, and not dealing with the root of the problem, we are going nowhere as a nation. Let’s give a boy child the same attention we give a girl child. Let’s not wait for them to get to jail, let’s equip them before they get into drugs and crime. girl child. If we going to take a girl child to work, let’s also take a boy child to work too. If we going to have seminars for young girls to teach them about pregnancy, let’s have seminars for young boys to teach them how to stay away from crime and impregnating a girl child. Don’t tell boys to be strong, show them how to be strong. If you going to tell a boy not to cry, teach him what to do with their emotions and feeling. Let’s not wait for them to get to jail, let’s equip them before they get into drugs and crime.
The aim is to Restore & Cement Identity through various project I do, from food parcel drives, Clothes donations, and monthly seminars
