Reconstructing masculinity with boys and young men

Two rows of people lie on the ground, back to back, with their arms raised into the air. Together, they're lifting up another person, in a trust-building workshop activity.

GFC partner Asociación SERniña began its work to promote gender equality in Guatemala in 2014 with a series of leadership and education programs targeting girls. However, the organization soon realized the need to bring in boys and young men to achieve real gender justice. In addition to working with women, SERniña has broadened its efforts to support young men in learning positive mindsets and behaviors, nurture their ideas, and inspire them to become community leaders. Learn more about Asociación SERniña and how the organization promotes healthy masculinities in Guatemala.

Shifting power to communities through equitable evaluation

In the philanthropic sector, a transformation is needed in conventional monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) practices. To foster long-term change, we need to move away from approaches that pressure grantee partners to focus on easily measurable results, and toward approaches that reflect what grantee partners find most meaningful for their work. Read this article in which GFC’s Liza Yanovich, Corey Oser, John Hecklinger, and Board member Jaclyn Foroughi lay out strategies for conducting MEL in a more equitable manner.
