Evaluation of the Action for Equality Programme

Equal Community Foundation (ECF) is based in Pune, India and has been working towards the singular goal of raising every man in India to end violence against women since 2009. ECF positions 1 violence against women as a man’s issue. ECF’s Theory of Change is “If young men study and practice gender equality with others they trust, and if these men are supported by influential parties including peer groups, parents, teachers and health workers, then they will change their own abusive behavior and challenge others to end their abusive behavior too.” 2 ECF structures itself in a way that reflects the two key roles it sees for itself: the development of tools, methodologies, evidence and expertise, and the dissemination of this knowledge through partnerships in order to influence widespread adoption of the approach.
