This manual was created for use by facilitators in the MenCare+ (Bandebereho) project. It is designed to engage young men aged 18-24 in group education to promote their involvement in sexual and reproductive health services, gender equality, caregiving and violence prevention. The manual includes 15 sessions with activities designed to engage young men in reflecting on issues of gender and power, sexual and reproductive health and rights, violence, and caregiving. The manual was designed in support of the MenCare+ program and the activities were developed through a process of formative research and adaptation for the Rwandan context.
This manual was produced by RWAMREC in collaboration with Promundo-US for the MenCare+ project in Rwanda. MenCare+ is a four-country initiative to engage men as caregiving partners in maternal, newborn, and child health and in sexual and reproductive health, coordinated by Promundo-US and Rutgers WPF.
