Camp Mission

Impact Mentoring Program discusses and teaches the principles of manhood. The teenage years are the make or break stages in a boy’s life. For today lots of money, time and resources are being used to try and fix broken men, while this could have been avoided by empowering them while they were still young. This program aim to help boys realize their potential and envision to prepare for a robust and productive future. The program again help instill a sense of discipline and responsibility in the young boy’s lives, while being taught the importance of being Emotionally, Physically, Socially and Economically strong.

We are expecting all 100 boys to join us in June 2023 on their first camp in Tanzania.
