About Us

Founded in Brazil in 1997, Promundo works internationally to engage men and boys in advancing gender equality and preventing violence. Promundo’s independently registered NGOs in the US, Brazil, Portugal, and Rwanda collaborate to conduct high-quality formative, population-based research; develop and conduct impact evaluations, scale-up gender transformative interventions; and carry out national and international advocacy to achieve gender equality and prevent violence. Promundo also is the co-founder of the MenEngage Alliance, a global network of NGOs and UN agencies working to engage men and boys in gender equality. Promundo-US, a separate legal entity, with its office in Washington, DC, coordinates technical assistance outside of Brazil, carries out advocacy globally, supports Promundo’s activities and fundraising across offices, and co-coordinates the global MenCare Campaign.
