Hero Empathy Programme For Boys

Hero Empathy Programme For Boys

The Hero Empathy Programme For Boys

To address the problems of abusive and violent behaviours at their root, we have developed a programme for young boys that includes them in finding a solution to gender-based violence.

Created with the help of specialists and psychologists, the programme seeks to:

• Break down stereotypes to understand the importance of gender equality and good gender relations.
• Build empathetic behaviour and attitudes towards women and girls.
• In an engaging way, provide boys with a foundation upon which they can play an enduring role in ending violence towards women.
• Encourage boys to care about the wellbeing of people - particularly women and girls - in their community.

Impact Of Our Work

• 86% of the boys reported that they have been exposed to violence against women and girls.

• 100% said the workshop made a significant change to their lives and that they will act differently towards women and girls.
• 98.6% responded that they had fun during the workshop and that other boys should get the opportunity to participate in the programme.
