MenCare program in Sri Lankan Tea Estate Area

The World Vision poster, “Improved child care practices and nutrition through MenCare Fatherhood Programme in Sri Lankan Tea Estate Area,” analyzes the MenCare program implemented in the Nuwara Eliya District of Sri Lanka. The program involved groups of 15-20 fathers participating in bi-weekly sessions for six months, with the objective of promoting men’s involvement in child well-being practices as gender-equitable caregivers and ending violence against women and children.

Qualitative assessment showed positive results of the MenCare approach in changing the attitude and practice of fathers toward childcare and nutrition.
