Benson is one of the longest running members of SAFE Pwani and was involved in its establishment in 2001. After showing an interest in taking on a financial role, S.A.F.E. sponsored Benson to qualify as a CPA (certified public accountant). As well as an actor, he is now S.A.F.E.'s financial controller, handling the finances across all of the teams. In this role, he prepares budgets for all activities and overseas the movement of cash. 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.
