Equal Community Foundation
Equal Community Foundation's mission is to ensure every man in India has the opportunity to study and practise gender equitable behaviour to end violence and discrimination against women.
We translate this mission through the focussed and intensive Programmes we develop and implement among our target group of adolescent young men and boys. We believe in inspiring a new generation of social programming that engages men to end violence and discrimination against women.
Our programme model is designed on the principle that if men study and debate the value of women with others that they trust, and if they are supported with tools to manage their behaviour by role models that they respect, then they will:
- Reduce their own violent and discriminating behaviour
- Advocate an end to end violence and discrimination by their peers and others;
- Take personal and collective action to empower women
