Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Men To Be Seen

Everytime we hear about girls empowerment and women empowerment and we have never heard of boys or men empowerment. There has been a strong organisation or amovement that has ever stood up and said that they are going to stand for boys or men with their rights. I realised that a number of men are also affected by what is going on and while walking around Kibera I met this young man who started this organisation that is going to stand for then and cater for some of their fights. Lawrence Aogi is an I.T teaches at a college around kibera and he was motivated to start this movement when he saw aman being mistreated by awoman just because the woman report him to the authorities.
