Testimonials

Men in this program have demonstrated the struggle to overcome their use of power and control in relationships. As a facilitator, I observed participants to be kind and respectful to me and to each other. Demonstrating respect is the key to respectful relationships

Before I joined this program, I never talked about my personal problems with anyone, I was too proud and thought that I should be in control and solve them myself. Learning from the group leaders and other men who were in the group with me has changed my life.
