As part of the VOICE project supported by the Association for India’s Development (AID), Mukti initiated a gender-based needs analysis with the men’s group from PurbaSridharpur on August 2nd, 2023. The session was attended by 10 enthusiastic male participants and was skilfully overseen by the VOICE field coordinator, Ms. Amuna Mondal, and the project coordinator, Mr. Sanjay Ghosh.
This purposeful gathering aimed to delve into the gender-related challenges faced by men and explore potential solutions. In order to foster parity and balance between men and women, it becomes imperative to cultivate a shared understanding and an equitable exchange of viewpoints. The collaborative efforts of both genders hold the potential to significantly bridge the fairness gap that exists. Through constructive dialogue and joint planning sessions, a framework will be developed, facilitating the active involvement of men in addressing gender-related concerns.
