As a young man growing up in Mathare Billian lost most of his friends due to petty crime and drug abuse, He made it his mission to provide a platform where he could create opportunities for this young people to turn to instead of getting into the life of crime.

He founded The Billian Music Family – A community based organization in Mathare that natures talents in Mathare slums and provides needy talented kids with scholarships to get quality education and the Ficha Uchi Campaign an Initiative that provides primary school pupils from humble back ground decent school uniforms as a way of restoring dignity and self-esteem.

This is achieved by donating decent school uniforms to students in dire need of basic clothing that would otherwise wear tattered uniforms to school. In addition, the trust organizes motivational talks as well as provides life coaches who work with the students in charting forward their academic paths.
