"We need the men to learn what we are learning.” We heard this over and again from women in our programs. In 2001, WfWI country teams developed pilot programs in Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to train men. The goal was clear: create a place for men to explore gender, masculinity, and understand the benefits to families and communities when women are empowered. Fifteen years after the implementation of the Men’s Engagement program, we have seen how having men as allies strengthens the mission of our program.
