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.

About

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.

From 2024 to 2026, the program will support two cohorts of refugee and immigrant fathers to engage actively with their families and communities. Each cohort will run over 30 weeks.
