Over the years, the focus has always been on empowering girls with very few social intervention left for the boys.
However, if boys are also empowered in an early stage, society would not have to spend so much in training girls to be better wives or individuals.
Societies would have more marriages last longer, less rape, less infidelity , less violence and corruption.
With this in mind, TV personality Kobi Hemaa Osisiadan-Bekoe better known as Ohemaa, has rolled out her social enterprise, Angeles Foundation, to help raise boys in becoming responsible men.
In an exclusive interview with Razzonline.com,she said the foundation would offer boys with training such as self discovery, behavioral change , vocational empowerment and among others.
The foundation, she said, would not only make use of responsible adult facilitators but would also have the Founder of Junior Boys Mentorship clinic, Elthel Marfo, on board.
Junior Boys Mentorship clinic is also an NGO on a mission in raising boys.
With her teaching background, Ohemaa said Angeles Foundation would engage boys , empower and help change the mindset about personal role to make an impact in the society.
She said “We need to train boys to be honest with themselves, supportive of girls, hardworking and humble as all these are qualities to becoming responsible men”.
“Boys don’t just get girls pregnant, they do all sort of things to girls” she added.
Most of the these social vices that happens , she said,constitute of boys , hence the reason to train them.
She made this known when she Launched Angeles Foundation here in Accra with the support of the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations .
Kobi Hemaa demonstrated her commitment to this campaign by appointing her first son, Boris Nimpong Osisiadan as the Chief Operating officer (C.O.O). He is a first year student of K.N.U.S.T It took him by surprise but he gave an intelligent unprepared speech that overwhelmed the audience.
