Nigeria NGO Launches Global Dialogue on Boys Future, Boys Challenge
Lagos, Nigeria- July 08, 2021- There is an increasing number of boys growing up without positive developmental role models. Many of these boys believe their fathers are failures, the government has failed them and the religious organizations have ignored their developmental needs. This is gradually leading to a collapsed society. The boys are the nucleus of the society. When we resolve the boys’ issues, several of issues with girls are also solved.
“Boys Future, Boys Challenge” is a monthly global revolutionary discourse on boyhood to manhood that is aimed at parents, stakeholders, mentors, educators, family therapists and everyone working positively to help boys and adolescent males achieve the right objectives about life and living. To develop and equip the mind of boys for a successful and respectful manhood, there is need to first understand the brain science of boys, identify the qualities of success, persuade them that they have the potential for success, inspire them to succeed and educate them to love, live, learn, and leave a legacy.
Boys Mentoring Advocacy Network (BMAN) is one of Nigeria’s leading Non-Governmental Organization established to guide boys and adolescent males on their journey to a healthy, caring, respectful and responsible manhood. The mission of BMAN to cultivate boys to stand out by standing up, equip boys to be excellent and nonviolent communicators, teach boys ethical literacy, and train boys to learn their own worth has propelled its critical look into the lens of betting and gambling.
Betting and Gambling addiction has continued to thrive among boys in Africa. It has become rampant even among secondary school boys. They are hoodwinked and deceived on almost every level to bet and gamble with the hope of an easy escape from financial hardship. Our boys become wild and violent when they lose the chance of winning from betting and gambling. Promising young boys have turned to robbery, stealing, selling their personal effects to bet and gamble on a weekly basis. The future of young men gets bleak on a daily basis as they rely solely on winning from betting and gambling as quick means to an end, but get bitten with weekly losses.
The inaugural discourse is on the topic: “BETTING AND GAMBLING AMONG UNDERAGE BOYS- Impact on Life Outcome in Adulthood”. Panelists has been drawn from across the globe to participate in this discourse which is scheduled to hold on Saturday July 10, 2021.
