Challenge

While it is true that women and girls often have worse outcomes in terms of health, education, and quality of life, than their male counterparts, both genders are equally affected by decades of war and conflict in Afghanistan. Men and boys are often overlooked in development programs with more attention being paid to the rights of women and girls.

Solution

In order to move forward towards achieving better health and education outcomes, we must work together, allying with men and creating communities that recognize the value of both genders. This has impacted the mental well-being and physical health of both men and women and continues to put immense stress on households and their members.

Long-Term Impact

This revolutionary approach aims to educate men to be advocates for gender equality. Graduates of this program will understand why women's rights are integral to the recovery of their communities and how to be advocates for change. This program aims to move forward towards achieving better health and education outcomes helping curb domestic violence by recognizing equality among both genders, promoting awareness of mental health and the implications of the notions of masculinity on wellbeing.
