Transforming Masculinities is Tearfund’s evidence-based intervention to end sexual and gender-based violence and promote gender-equal societies

This quick guide to Transforming Masculinities (TM) provides a brief overview of Tearfund’s evidence-based approach to ending sexual and gender-based violence and promoting gender-equal societies.

It introduces the three key components:

  • Faith leader training and engagement
  • Gender Champion training and engagement
  • Community Dialogues

The quick guide also provides a brief introduction to the three core resources: Hand in Hand Bible studies, the training manual for faith leaders and Gender Champions, and the Community Dialogue handbook.

It outlines the structure and purpose of the community dialogues, highlighting the core messages from each week and detailing the essential components of the sessions.

This quick guide is built upon by the implementation guide which gives a detailed walk through of the programme for those who are considering implementation.
