Ten partners of the MenEngage Africa network, including MenEngage Botswana, Kenya MenEngage, MenEngage Tanzania and MenEngage Swaziland, are meeting in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for our annual capacity building programme. Held from 4th April 2017 to 6th April 2017, the training will focus on a wide range of topics including strengthening media and communications, improving monitoring and evaluation systems, network building and sharpening the thematic campaigns of the MenEngage Africa alliance.
Our thematic focus areas largely focus on upholding women’s and girls’ rights, but more specifically, but with specific focus on preventing and addressing sexual and gender-based violence, advocating against female genital mutilation (FGM) and promoting men’s and boys’ involvement in preventing and addressing HIV and AIDS in Africa.
The overall goal of this capacity building workshop is to build an African network of organisations with increased commitment and capacity to implement, document and advocate for effective, evidence-based and scaled-up interventions to engage boys and men in achieving gender equality.
The overall goal of the Workshop is to build capacity for key regional resource persons with the skills necessary to implement activities across the key MenEngage thematic areas through, documentation and building strong partnerships for effective interventions to engage boys and men in achieving gender equality. The Workshop will assess progress made, identify existing obstacles and challenges, and exchange experiences and share good practices amongst participants on ways for overcoming these. The expected accomplishments at the end of the Workshop include:
