The Men Like Me program aims to empower refugee and immigrant fathers through a peer-led model to foster healthy mindsets and promote positive masculinities.
The Men Like Me program, in partnership with White Ribbon, aims to empower refugee and immigrant men and boys, promoting positive masculinities and fostering allies in the effort to prevent and combat Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in their communities.
