Engaging Men

Engaging men to be a part of the solution

KGSA knows that providing only education will not break the cycle of poverty; we must engage the men in the community to be active change-makers and advocate for new models of fatherhood and masculinity.

KGSA is working to design a course for students’ fathers on how they can better advocate for their daughter’s health and education while promoting positive images and behaviors of fatherhood. Through this class, fathers discuss the challenges they face as men, how they can create healthy, supportive relationships in their lives, the connection between their daughter’s success and their own happiness, and action steps that they can take to make a healthier, stronger Kibera.
