The Challenge as we see it

  • To change the narrative from pointing a finger at men to inviting men to play their part in finding sustainable solutions to the social challenge of equality.
  • To equip men to rise up above the stereotypes, the status quo and become holistically great men.
  • To Inspire men to fight for all the right reasons, stand up for all the right things and unapologetically embrace all it means to be a man.
  • Provide an inclusive platform that challenges every person who calls himself male, no matter his position in life, sexual preference, stature or nature to become active agents of change at home, at work and in his community.
