Engaging Men and Women to promote Gender Equality
Breaking the Barriers Facilitator Manual
Together with Sonke Gender Justice, Concern has developed a facilitator manual to engage men and women in a gender transformative process and to take steps to improve our gender programming.
This manual is used at country programme level with Concern staff, and in some programmes later adapted to be used at community level by our staff. The manual is subdivided into four sections including:
- Gender transformative activities covering the themes of gender roles, power, violence, healthy relationships
- Enabling change
- Gender transformative programming
- Community mobilisation approaches
This manual is available in both English and French below.

It examines our approach and shares the results obtained, as well as the challenges encountered and the recommendations for taking Engaging Men programming forward.
