This program works with over 5000 boys and men through meaningful engagement in advancing gender equity and equality. The program is necessary not only for the empowerment of women and girls, but also to transform the social and gender norms that reinforce patriarchy and inequality that harm women and girls. The Boys for change are trained on Menstrual Hygiene and information to champion to eradicate Female Genital Cutting. They champion to end retrogressive cultures and support women and girls empowerment at the community and leadership level.
Your help will enable us to push on further. By 2020 we intend to have a full mentorship program included within Boys for Change, alongside an extended curriculum that informs young men about how to safely and successfully enter manhood.
