Great idea. You are such an inspiration to many Allan,and through this, God's favour will be with you everywhere you go. Every time,it is only the girl child that is being empowered first,but at least you have come up with empowering a boy child also. This is a great idea. Go for it dear...Congratulations. You are worth it.

Kudos for the good work you are doing to empower the boy child.Majority of the efforts have been put on the girl child and ignoring the boy child hence making the latter vulnerable.Congratulations for coming in to fill the void.Purpose to work with like minded organisations to make this dream a reality

Awesome idea! Keep up the good work. Am so happy that even as we mostly focus on the girl child people like you are already working towards making a boy child that can peacefully co-exist with an empowered girl. Am touched

This is good work Allan...over the years the boy child has been neglected and more emphasis has been put on the girl child... The boy child has suffered tremendously and it has led to the society having half baked immoral men...I'm glad that through your project more boys are seeing the light and their future is being secured... Looking forward to seeing you reaching out to boys from even other areas apart from Korogocho...Kudos!
