Introduction to the learning journey


We have designed a unique learning journey that will guide you through the various stages towards implementing programmes that raise Gender Equitable Boys. The stages in the journey are represented by the modules and the order in which they present. You will find the modules under the tabs above.

Structure of the modules

Each module has a description of points it will cover, links to training videos or webinars and links to the downloadable resources. It also has recommended assignment that will help you to put what you have learnt or know in action.

At the end of the module, there is a short confirmation and feedback form that you will be required to fill to mark the progression towards the next stage.

Please note that all resources on the portal are currently in English and Marathi. We will make the tools available in Hindi over the next two months.
