To provide a path to a better life for young men in Africa, so that they will break their cycle of poverty & its consequences.
The reality is that due to their own abuse & abandonment, many of Africa’s boys are vulnerable to the destructive paths that lead to poverty, crime and violence. This reality adversely affects the lives of Africa’s other vulnerable demographic: her women and children.
A new reality and a different path is needed if we are to truly impact the lives of all Africa’s children—including her boys.
We are Standing with Boys
Stand with us on the Path to a New
Three Steps to a New Path
path 1: teach principles
The principles of making Good Choices, becoming Accountable, obeying Rules, understanding Consequences, living in Gratitude, Serving others, Respecting women, and equitable Leadership, are the keys to success. Principles are a young man’s North Star. Without them, boys become lost, confused, and troubled. Learn More
path 2: Promote self-reliance
Financial and business management, problem solving, critical thinking, and learning to work with others are some of the self-reliance principles we teach. Without them, young men are less likely to trust their own creative and unique abilities. Learn More
path 3: DELIVER job skills
Learning a job skill is crucial to a boy’s development into provident living. Job skills build self-worth, boost self-confidence, and help to put boys on a path out of poverty. Learn More
Our teachers mentor boys who rarely have a positive male role-model in their lives.
Since 2014, Standing with Boys offers a yearlong, principle-based program, taught once a month to boys in primary school.
Our efforts have expanded from Kenya to Uganda, and soon Ghana.
