  • WHY BOYS ADVOCACY

    My passion for boys advocacy all begin with the privilege of work for boys project Nigeria where we mentor about 18 street boys in Oshodi. As I began to try and understand the world of a street boys ,sexual abuse of boys came fore and I realised it was an issuse that was under reported and as I began to interact with me, cankerworms of viscous boys sexual abuse was opened and the devastating psychological impact on their mental and social growth was hampered.

     

    Moreso, I began to receive stories account in graphic details of sexual abuse and rape as boys.

     

    To this end I saw there was the need to champion and project the voices of the boys know the subject of sexual abuse,which led to the creation of the Boys Lives Matter,  a movement to get boys voices heard and to sensitise the public on boys sexual abuse and it’s attendant impact corrosive to the mental and social development of the boy into a man. That’s why our slogan reads- “a broken boy is a broken man.”
