The first phase of the Fellowship Programme provided the participants an opportunity for depending reflection and awareness around the gendered self followed by the conceptual understanding on masculinities and its linkages to patriarchy, globalisation & development, conflict, religion, culture and media. 30 fellows from the region have completed their individual projects under the mentorship process adopted in the fellowship programme.
