MenCare Georgia was established in 2014 by UNFPA Georgia and NGO Care Together, and its goal is to increase male involvement for gender equality in Georgia.
In 2014, the study Men and Gender Relations in Georgia was published for the first time in country, which showed that gender roles in Georgia are unequally distributed. According to the results of the research, there is a perception of stereotypical “male” and “female work in the society.
That’s why we decided to create a campaign that aims to promote men’s involvement, positive parenting, elimination of violence and equal distribution of roles in families
