INDODA izibamba ziqine! We define a man by his physical dominance, social importance and financial achievement.

But what really defines a man?

It is time that men redefined masculinity to acknowledge who they are in this world.


A man is not his possessions or his career, so let us define him by his purpose and efforts. Raise a boy to be the type of man you want to see.

Teach boys that a man:

- Does not fear failure and takes responsibility

- Has a duty to become his best self

- Knows his limitations and works to overcome them

- Is at peace with his emotions and feelings

- Is not defined by sexual intercourse or conquests

- Respects others and welcomes equality.

When you know your strengths and weaknesses as a man, it empowers you to be respectful and understanding of other people’s shortcomings.

Ndoda! In you there is a leader, a protector, a guardian, a father, a brother and a boy waiting to take his place in history and bring forth change.

This is a call to action for all men to stand against gender based violence.

Enough is enough!
