The objectives of celebrating an IMD include focusing on men’s and boys’ health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models, while creating a safer less-violent world.
It is an occasion to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular to community, family, marriage, and childcare.
This year’s international theme, “Give Boys the Best Possible Start in Life” is asking people around the world to focus on five key challenges that boys all over the world experience:
FRC will be hosting two events in honour of IMD. The 1st Annual International Men’s Day Football Tournament & Expo open to the public and “Give Boys the Best Possible Start in Life” Roundtable Discussion which will be a featured broadcast.
We invite all to take part in these events and we also encourage organisations, community or individuals to join us in celebrating with events that are solution- focused and address the five key challenges presented.
“We feel it is important that boy’s issues are highlighted and we give them an opportunity to express themselves as well,” Miriam Foster, Acting Programme Coordinator of the Family Resource Centre. There is more information attached regarding FRC’s events.
