This guide enables trained Gender Champions to facilitate community discussions about gender norms, gender roles and faith-based responses to sexual and gender-based violence.

It contains sessions for men and women to cover in separate small groups before they come together for combined sessions.

This adaptation is in collaboration with the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) and USAID. It includes reflections on family planning and child spacing.
