BMA Scaffolding Pillars

Economic empowerment

Poverty has a way of in-dignifying people. For one to live a dignified life therefore, constant and stable source of livelihood is imperative. Poverty alleviation hence is one of our key pillars, through which we help restore dignity to needy young men by helping them engage in sustainable source of livelihood.

Psychosocial support

Stable mental and emotional state is key in helping people achieve their dreams, as well as lead a holistic life. Most of our beneficiaries come from challenging backgrounds which requires psychological interventions to help them deal with their pains in order for them to face life in a healthy way within themselves and in their interaction with others.

Spiritual Formation

Spirituality is the engine that drives hopeful, meaningful and purposeful living. Spiritual motivation and guidance is therefore part of our philosophy and is integrated in all our programs.

BMA is unique because its Theory of Change is oriented around a holistic transformation process, which focuses not only on meeting immediate physical needs, but other factors that prevent a person from living in fullness. BMA focuses on programming in three respective areas — professional and vocational training, material welfare and counseling. Woven throughout these areas is an ongoing focus on psycho-spiritual therapy, which is an approach that integrates body, mind, emotions, and the spirit and assists beneficiaries with developing a greater understanding of their self within the context of a greater whole. A common thread heard during exit interviews is that these young men gained a transformed understanding of their identity, worth, and purpose during their time with BMA. BMA’s individualized, yet integrated approach, enables a concentrated program customized around each individual’s needs, which effectively moves them from despair and self-hatred to hope and self-acceptance.
