the boytalk project is an initiative that
supports boys by encouraging
open conversations about the
pressure faced by young men growing up surrounded by toxic masculinity.. .
Many boys become men at a time and in a way that alienates them from themselves. To encourage boys to develop healthy relationships with their masculinity from a young age, our community leaders have adapted Promundo’s Program H curriculum to create "The BoyTalk Project" so that boys in India’s cities can have another way of being.
In child harm hotspots in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, West Bengal, and Jharkhand, we've identified 300 Youth Hosts who will conduct workshops with young men who want to change rigid gender narratives around "what it means to be a man."
