Boys learn to be shepherds at an early age in Turkana. By the age of 10 – 12, they may be sent out on their own to shepherd the family’s goats. Due to this early working age, many young men have only had a couple years of education and may not even be able to read.
SHARE’s ministry to young men empowers them to be strong in their faith and share God’s Word with others. The Young Men’s Ministry enables Turkana boys to become strong, Godly men and break the cycle of ungodly Turkana traditions.
