    This handbook was primarily developed for young men participating in a training project in Kenya. It is intended to be shared by youth in their efforts to reach out to other young men with the message of positive masculinities within their community. But it can be useful for other community trainers for sensitizing men and women about positive masculinities. It can also be useful for anyone who is interested in the subject, including radio broadcasters. 

    The handbook contains seven modules: 

    • Understanding gender
    • Understanding masculinities
    • The masculinity crisis
    • Gender-based violence
    • Re-defining masculinities
    • Mobilizing men against gender-based violence
    • Communication skills
