ECF - Equal Community Foundation

Helping young men become more gender equitable


Established in 2009, Equal Community Foundation (ECF) strives to change gender attitudes and develop leaders to end violence against women. Their mission is to ensure that every man in India has the opportunity to study and practice gender equitable behavior with the belief that men are part of the solution to end gender inequality. Their core program is called Action for Equality and is divided into three stages lasting a total of 60 weeks, during which boys are trained by mentors to manage day-to-day situations in a gender equitable way. Dalyan supports ECF’s research and evaluation department to strengthen their long-term impact measurement over a three-year period.
