I am a grown up man aged 41. I know the experience of growing up without a father no a father-figure role model in my life. I was on the verge of drifting away and finding myself in the world of criminality. I know how it feels to want to be recognised and respected. I totally believe that if my father was present in my life, a lot of my mistakes would have been avoided.
Today I am father of 2 boys and 1 girl and I am determined that I will be a better role model to them and ensure that they have a much better upbringing than me. With my experiences, I believe that I can give back to the community and indeed become a role model to a lot of young boys who long for a father's affection. I want to stand in the gap!!
Can you please help us to make this possible through your donations??
