Lab Area: Girls' Education & Empowerment

Region: Asia

Categories: Child Marriage and Male Engagement

In this powerful podcast series, Sahar Education explores how boys and men can be critical allies in promoting girls’ education, rights, and empowerment in Afghanistan.

Sahar’s Men as Partners in Change Program provides boys and men the unique opportunity to engage in conversations about gender in Afghan society. Participants discuss ideas about fatherhood and caregiving, mental health and trauma, physical health, and what it takes to be a gender champion in their community. By sparking these conversations and seeding thinking, boys and men become strong gender partners in their homes and communities.

The first episode highlights Men as Partners in Change trainee Sohrab. Together with Sapida, a former Afghan Fellow with Sahar, Sohrab explores his own experience as a young man in Afghanistan and why engaging men as partners in change is important for his community. The podcast series is available on Spotify, Pocket Casts, and Anchor.

This podcast series was produced as a learning product under the WomenStrong Girls’ Education and Empowerment Learning Lab.
