Benson is one of the longest running members of SAFE Pwani and was involved in its establishment in 2001. As well as an actor, he is SAFE Pwani’s financial controller. In this role, he prepares the monthly budget for all Pwani activities and overseas the movement of cash. To help him in this role, S.A.F.E. has sponsored Benson to undertake a diploma in accountancy and he has 2.5 years left. He lives in Mombasa and hopes, through his work in S.A.F.E., to inspire other actors so that they can also work in NGOs whilst still being creative.
