PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Harmful cultural norms are the main drive of many mental health for men, Men going around inheriting many widows without being mindful of family planning or HIV status, they therefore end up having many children that they cannot afford to take care of. This then pave way for more alcohol and hard drug abuse in the name of forgeting about their responsibilities. This project will then create a platform whereby men within fisher communities will be able to have a dialogue with a psychologist during lunch as they condemn such harmful cultural norms in a smart way without being victimised of anything.
