Evaluation Report of the MenCare 50:50 Programme implementation in Free State South Africa 2019-2020

The report presents findings from an evaluation of the MenCare 50:50 programme implemented through educational sessions with men and couples to promote gender equality in homes and improve overall family well-being. This is with the aim of promoting positive and equitable empowerment for women, and improvement in the caring of children. Implementors were trained on the MenCare 50:50 programme to recruit couples for educational sessions meant to address gender inequality in households. Specifically, the programme sought to change attitudes and behaviour towards women’s participation in paid work; equitable household decision-making; men’s participation in unpaid care work and women’s involvement in household decision-making, and in deciding about their own earnings.
