ProjectMEN2020 joins the global community in the observance of International Men’s Day 2018.
International Men’s Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated every year on November 19. It was founded by Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, from Trinidad & Tobago in 1999 and today is observed in over 80 countries around the world.
The theme for International Men’s Day 2018 is ‘Positive Male Role Models’.
International Men’s Day is observed by persons from all walks of life, who support the ongoing effort to improve lives, heal scarred hearts, seek solutions to social problems, mend troubled minds, reform the social outcasts and uplift the dysfunctional. It is designed to promote positive role models in society and develop wholesome individuals.
Such developments are badly needed in today’s wounded communities which reflect distorted and outdated beliefs and constant clashes among men, women and children which unravels the fabric of the family and the society.
The spotlight has been placed on positive role models to raise awareness of men’s health and well-being. “International Men’s Day encourages men to teach the boys in their lives the values, character and responsibilities of being a man.”
ProjectMEN2020 today joins the global community in challenging the men of the nation, to be positive role models to the children and youths of the nation.
