#MenAreTrash: Serial entrepreneur launched a boy’s foundation

Nicolas Manyike said, “Not all men are trash. Society focuses more on grooming girls to behave and be good girls, who will be good wives one day in future, what about boys?”

Following the highly published death of Karabo Mokoena and string of other femicides, a twitter movement ‘men are trash’ gained prominence.

CEO of public relations company, Tale PR & Communications, an award-winning publicist, property investor, serial-entrepreneur and philanthropist Nicolas Manyike has launched a foundation that will focus on boys.

Manyike said, “Not all men are trash. Society focuses more on grooming girls to behave and be good girls, who will be good wives one day in future, what about boys?

“Sadly, there are many things going wrong in our communities and the country at large, which are rooted in the absence of guidance in our families and having absent fathers has caused too much damage to our society,” he said.

He said fathers should play their part and should protect women because when a man kill’s a woman, he kills a nation – we know that a home is a home because of women.

Through dedication, Partnership and commitment to creating positive change, the foundation remains a partner of choice for social change through its programmes; Youth Development programme, Entrepreneurship mentorship programme, Health-care Volunteer programme, Art & Culture programme.

“However, the foundation is an atmosphere where the boys are empowered to take up their rightful positions in their communities, to start entrepreneurship journey early and be better man.

We are seeking sponsorship for our programs. We call out help to government, corporate and individuals to come on board,” said Manyike.

The foundation has 20 boys already that are being mentored to be entrepreneurs and be better men. It aims to bridge the gap by impacting boys’ lives and empowering them as they grow up.

This is an opportunity to also start entrepreneurship journey early.

“The foundation aims to restore love and forgiveness at a family level, and if this can become the foundation of every life, then respect for each other will return and communities will change. This is what we hope to see coming out of the boys,” said Manyike.
