ABOUT US

Men for Gender Equality Now (MEGEN) was formed in the year 2001 as an initiative to engage with men and boys for the promotion of gender equality and human rights. Since its inception, MEGEN have worked with different stakeholders to ensure its programmes reach a wide audience and particularly people at the grassroots. MEGEN was first registered as an autonomous Society in Kenya in 2005.

In 2011, the organisation changed status to a National Non- Governmental Organisation. Our experience helped us to broaden our thinking and thus widen the scope of our thinking and engagement. As we interacted with different communities, the intersection between Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), HIV & AIDS became apparent. We found a group of men who gave us inspiration in working with men and to help them live positively especially those who had contracted HIV & AIDS.

MEGEN’s community activism and programmes have provided a foundation to advance human rights for all. The programmes are based on a set of internal institutional priorities that translate to the deliverance on its mandate. The organisation’s work is centered around four main strategic directions and priorities i.e. Communication and Advocacy, Capacity Building, Survivors Support, Research and Development. The focus areas have been identified based on it’s mandate and the foundation laid in the last decade of MEGEN’s history. The concerted efforts and priorities have been ground- breaking and daring.
