Masculinities, Faith, and Peace (MFP) addresses harmful social norms in mixed Muslim and Christian communities

This Masculinities Faith and Peace (MFP) manual introduces the training for Christian Gender Champions and faith leaders. It provides a detailed activity guide for use in training, and includes guidelines to support the community dialogues that the Gender Champions will lead and facilitate.

It is based on the standard Transforming Masculinities manual but includes new components on social cohesion and child spacing.

It is designed to be used in parallel with the Muslim version which drawns out similar messages from Muslim texts.

The goal of MFP is to see a reduction in sexual and gender-based violence, an increase in the healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies, and improved inter-religious relationships.
