‘Masculinities, Leadership and Gender Justice in Sub-Saharan Africa’ is a short, intensive, ten-day residential course which seeks to expand the skills and knowledge of women and men in the Sub-Saharan Africa region to scale up work on engaging men and boys in gender equality, and build a network of leaders and gender justice advocates. In doing so, it aims to strengthen existing work on the greater involvement of men and boys in the prevention and response to sexual and gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health and rights, HIV and AIDS, fatherhood, child sexual exploitation and abuse, LGBTI rights and other issues pertaining to gender equality.
The ten-day course will incorporate a mix of thematic and skills-building sessions, as well as a site visit and daily opportunity for self-reflection. The course also entails a ‘Project for Change’ to engage men in gender justice, and a mentorship programme. See the full course overview.
The course will take place from 20-30 August 2012.
