Boys For Positive Change

 

Boys for Positive Change (BPC) is our newest pilot program at Expo. With the success of our Girls LEAP, we saw a need for similar mobilization with Senior High School (SHS) aged boys. 

 

The mission of BPC is to sensitize boys to recognize social norms underlying gender inequality and empower them to become agents of positive change by challenging these norms.

BPC is an afterschool club for SHS Form 2 boys. They meet once a week and discuss a number of topics which include:

  • expressing emotions

  • gender norms underlying inequality

  • family and relationships

  • masculinity 

  • violence and gender based violence

  • community issues
