Activate Men ZA is of the view that South Africa is in dire need of good young men and women who consistently seek to build the nation by dismantling the stereotypes built around young men and women. Project Co-Ordinator, Themba Mzima told Relebogile more about Activate Men ZA.

A! Men is a youth advocacy group led by ACTIVATE! Change Drivers. The movement aims to challenge and re-focus negative perceptions about men.

The youth structure seeks to reclaim a positive reputation of men in society, redefine gender roles, connect gender activists and experts, provoke dialogues about patriarchal myths, positively influence social beliefs; specifically youth and to provide support links for every South African.

The A! Men Movement also intends to provoke robust discussions on masculinity, facilitate life skills mentorship programmes and ongoing fatherhood support structure

In February the A!Men Movement will launching a Business Men Forum where they are trying to create a dialogue around issues and hopefully find solutions.
