Canadian Council of Muslim Women and White Ribbon (2016) – Needs Assessment Report – Engaging Men and Boys to End Violence in the Family

Overview

In partnership, WR [White Ribbon] and CCMW [Canadian Council of Muslim Women] implemented the project Engaging Men & Boys to End Violence in the Family. The goals of this initiative are to complete a needs assessment, and to develop a resource toolkit to successfully engage men and boys in GBV prevention. The purpose of this project is to develop and strengthen the skills of men and boys, working in partnership with women and girls, to identify and respond to GBV in their communities. The project aims to strengthen the skills of men and boys by developing a toolkit to engage men and boys in preventing violence against women and girls (VAWG). The project also seeks to engage key decision makers in the communities so as to transform the environment and create a cultural shift.

CCMW is the lead organization, providing overall project coordination, strategic guidance, cultural expertise, review and feedback of the needs assessment and toolkit. WR is acting as a consulting organization in the process of implementing the needs assessment and creating the toolkit. The Stakeholder Group is a group of individuals and organizations that have gathered to provide input and advice on the needs assessment process, and the development and implementation of the toolkit (see Appendix 6).

Both CCMW and WR recognize the important role of men and boys in ending VAWG. As the data from the needs assessment will show, civil society believes that men not only can be involved, but must be engaged if we are to end VAWG. Therefore the process of the needs assessment and the development of a toolkit enhance men and women’s capacity to become engaged participants in ending VAWG.
