Yesterday, we spoke to the ‘Lost Boys’ formerly a criminal gang on the road of transformation at the former inaccessible ‘Lost Street’ in Kisugu, Makindye Division, Kampala.
We were invited by Plan International in conjunction with Safer cities for girls to deliver a message of hope, on transformation journey of these great men and women that everything to change their lives is centered in their decision to opt for a fundamental change.
These confessed to us that they indeed engaged in untold misneeds, like robbery, harrasing the women and girls, drug abuse, manipulation, unnecessary fights, to mention but a few.
Our founder Mordecai Muriisa Martin Junior , shared with them his life story from the ghettos of Lubaga to the worldwide screens, he anchored his message on hope, motivation and inspiring the sleeping abilities in them.
He surfaced in two appearances, first with a hoodie, army camouflage and sports shoes to blend with them and later in a suit to look like the professionals you know, but there was a message that life can change in minutes if you dares to transform.
We were thrilled with the hospitality from former untouchables, unruly and notorious group, indeed the transformation goal is in their hands, these asked for financial support to buy a a jet car washing machine, general financial transformation and media space to deliver a message that change is possible.
Special thanks to plan international and safer cities for girls, these are driven by the desire to provide free and safe accessibility of girls and women to public places, and communities.
