  • 2. Men and boys are disadvantaged by simplistic gender stereotyping In RSA 70% of men see themselves (& the evidence supports them) as ‘good guys’ (various research reports including MRC and Sonke Gender Justice) Policy and media emphasise the 30% Gender programmes emphasise the 30% We focus on ‘growing’ the 70 growing’ 70% Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 3. There is now a global consensus (including the NSP) that we must engage boys and men in HIV/AIDs related issues such as gender relations, treatment and care etc. Growing the 70% involves – Supporting some existing behaviours Encouraging new behaviours Nurturing changed behaviours To do that we need to give the 70% a platform for change Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 4. Male-positive and sex-positive programmes that encourage discussion about the 70/30 A structured, safe space to explore the challenges of growing up male in RSA today Safe places to discuss the behaviours of girls and young women Focus on different masculinities, sex and relationships, rights as well as responsibilities Time for the boys to reflect and try out the theory With support from their communities Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 5. 6 x 3 hr sessions over about 4 weeks; Iterative learning (HIV, gender based violence and more); Using materials designed just for boys and young men The programme needs skilled facilitation and as much community support as possible Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 6. Sex and Relationship Education was re- named Boys 2 Men in Limpopo “ These topics (HIV / gender based violence / power relations) are taboo and remain highly guarded secrets within our communities” “Boys 2 Men gave us the opportunity to begin to talk about these issues and we welcomed the opportunity” The boys are now driving the programme through their communities through their informal’ ‘informal’ networks Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 7. The Boys have knowledge that is often contradictory Many of their lives are very tough They want decent futures They respond with enthusiasm and humour, have contributed to programme design & have requested more programmes Adults in their communities welcome the programme and have asked for more of them Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 8. Demand for this rights based programme is increasing To achieve this significant numbers of high quality facilitators are required Funding is difficult to access Girls are demanding a parallel programme As a niche, community outreach institute at UL we have had to re-define our role (from implementer facilitator) in order to take this programme to scale Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
  • 9. Improvement of the programme design Facilitator training Designing rigorous M&E Quality control through SAQA Supporting institutions to implement the programme We – as an institute - will only implement locally where we have the capacity Development, Facilitation and Training Institute – SAHARA, 3rd December, 2009
