The world often focuses on the negative experiences faced by girls, but the boy child is just as vulnerable and deserves our attention and support. Cases of sexual abuse, neglect, and abandonment of boys are on the rise, with many going unreported. This can lead to a life of crime, substance abuse, and violence, with some even being recruited by rebel leaders.
The See Them Grow Foundation is dedicated to breaking this cycle by empowering boys and young men to make positive life choices. Our program focuses on improving relationships between males and females, breaking down harmful gender stereotypes, and reducing sexual violence and abuse against women and girls.
Our program is designed for teenagers and young men between the ages of 12 and 31, both in and out of school. Through counseling, soccer, and skills training, we aim to provide support, education, and opportunities for growth.
Counseling provides support for young men facing challenges and adverse experiences, while soccer is used to promote positive social change and improve hygiene and sanitation practices. Skills training helps increase employment and earnings opportunities through informal technical skills training and business support services.
Our goal is to encourage a generation of young men who are responsible and positive role models in society. Our objectives are to impart knowledge, develop positive attitudes, and help students take action towards becoming better individuals. The outcome we strive for is a society where young men work together to create a safe environment for young girls and women to thrive.
All donations to the See Them Grow Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible and each donor will receive proper receipts. Join us in our mission to support and empower the boy child.
Soccer is used as a vehicle to bring about positive social change for children in Luuka district. STGF seeks to improve children’s lives by mobilizing, educating, and empowering them through soccer/football. This project takes a fun and educational approach to changing hygiene and sanitation practices through football. Given its broad appeal, football will be used as an entry point for a combination of training, workshop, and community awareness- raising events aimed at influencing more than 3,000 boys working in sugarcane plantations.
Through skills training we aim to increase employment and earnings opportunities for targeted young men & youths through informal technical skills training and business support services.
