Men without violence - Phase I

Scope: Tayacaja (Huancavelica), Jauja (Junín)
Cooperating entity: Bernard van Leer Foundation

From the perceptions of men regarding their relationships with their partners and with their sons and daughters, this project allowed to know how violence against women, boys and girls is expressed, and the magnitude that it reaches in the rural Andean context. He also found that existing services are focused on caring for victims, without interfering with the aggressors, who are also part of the problem; and that they have a sanctioning approach, rather than reeducation or training. Based on these findings and conclusions, a subsequent intervention proposal was developed to reduce the expressions of violence against women and children, in alliance with community and provincial leaders and institutions.
