About The Founder
The organisation’s background is derived from the inspirational and motivational life the founder lived as a student from a poor family. After his breakthrough, he decided to inspire young people in and outside schools to identify opportunities thus founding Gain Confidence Africa. This foundation is an umbrella through which together with others work towards reaching out to vulnerable young people, a state the founder was in years back. Even when he was demoted from primary five to primary two as a way of enabling him to secure sponsorship for his education, he did not decline from taking up the chance by well-wishers. He endured chants from pupils who lined at the school fence every evening chanting demeaning slogans at him.
But he was never deterred, he remained positive and going. He worked on construction sites as a porter in every holiday of school so as to find a penny to sustain himself in and outside school. While at school, he sold peanut butter every day throughout secondary life. By luck, through his sponsorship, he joined University to pursue a degree in law and he is yet to complete. His target is to impact vulnerable youth in the country just like he was impacted upon by others who paid his school fees throughout his education career path. He intends to do this through a registered Non-Government Organisation, Gain Confidence Africa, where he and other enthusiastic youth want to train the youth in entrepreneurial skills development given fact that the society needs more practical skills than theoretical knowledge.
