In 2005, Save the Children Sweden (SCS) established two boys’ groups in Addis Ababa. These groups were formed working in collaboration with two local partner organisations in order to provide a forum for boys and young men to discuss issues surrounding gender inequality, gender violence and the transmission of HIV/AIDS and to promote the idea of positive change within their communities. They are part of SCS’ child participation, HIV prevention and non-discrimination programmes.The boys' groups in Addis Ababa have the specific objective of promoting gender equality as a means of tackling the growing threat of HIV/AIDS and of gender violence.
