The need to bridge the gap between male and female gender empowerment and also shed light on the mental struggles and sexual abuse as it relates to the boy child informed the decision to host the conference as noted by Munachi Egbulonu, convener of Making Kings.
With a cross-section of Teenage boys and parents in attendance, the conference addressed the theme “Boys Becoming Men” cutting across several issues including mental health, career choices and financial intelligence.
Barr. Oyinda Ige, Founder of Nest Montessori Crèche and Pre-school and keynote speaker at Making Kings Conference emphasized that it was up to parents to ensure boys understand being told no is a normal part of life if we must reduce the incidences of sexual abuse.
Kings Klub, a mentorship group for Teenage boys was launched at the event alongside makingkings.org.
Ms. Egbulonu described Kings Klub as a network dedicated to raising a generation of physically and emotionally intelligent boys who will grow to become reputable leaders.
She also thanked those who had contributed to making the first edition of the conference a success including Nustreams Conference and Cultural Center, Jericho Mall, Muna treats and Edalaf brothers.
