    Hi my name is Alfred and I am a Kenyan, I am a program officer with Men for Gender Equality Now (MEGEN) Which is a national non-governmental organization whose main focus is to promote gender justice in the society. This is a noble initiative aimed at honing budding film makers’ skills. It is also a golden opportunity for people from around the world to interact and share experiences. Keep up the good job!
