Session: The Transforming Masculinities(T.M) intervention is a community mobilization process and “community activist” approach within faith communities. It runs as facilitated dialogues between men and women, focusing on diffusion activities on the broader community. It aims to change behavior and challenge harmful norms, and reinforcing positive gender norms and through role models. The focus is on gender equality, gender norms, and roles, power imbalance, relationships through scriptural and critical self-reflection and interactive activities. The approach uses SGBV as an entry point, but the goal of the process is to promote gender equality and positive masculinities. The key to this intervention is a personal commitment and willingness to change and reflect for all actors involved.
