As part of regional SUPERTATA and global MenCare campaign, a capacity building seminar for Program P was held.
Status M delivered a three day seminar (28th-30th Sep) named MenCare – engaging men in achieving gender equality in Međimurje County in partnership with the Institute for Public Health of Međimurje County in Čakovec.
The seminar gathered 30 professionals from the Institute of Public Health County of Međimurje, Family Center Čakovec, County Hospital Čakovec, Health Center Čakovec, Center for Social Welfare, Međimurje Police Department, Youth Advisory Board Prelog, professors from the Faculty of Teacher Education University of Zagreb – Čakovec branch and School of Civil engineering and School of Economics and Trade, as well as the teachers from Primary schools Kuršanec, Tomaša Goričanca Mala Subotica, Ivanovec, Pribislavec and Macinec.
The seminar was held by Mr. John Crownover – program consultant of CARE International and long-time associate of Status M with experience of working with programs M (program for working with young boys) and program P (program for working with fathers) in the Western Balkans.
During the seminar, topics of the Manual P – A manual for engaging men in fatherhood, caregiving and maternal and child health were presented: while conducting activities, participants had an opportunity to gain insight in the program and develop actions for working in their communities.
Next steps of SUPERTATA campaign in Međimurje will be informing the community and working directly with beneficiaries.
