Engaging Men for Women’s Empowerment in Burundi
This policy brief sets out the key policy-relevant findings of a field-based study of the Abatangamuco. Abatangamuco are both a formal organization and a movement of rural men in Burundi, who have set themselves the main task to challenge traditional gender-role expectations in their communities through personal change, testimonies and local community outreach activities. The Abatangamuco experience offers examples from which other organizations working to engage men for women's empowerment at the grass-roots level can learn.
