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.

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
