Multi-disciplinary Design Consultant
The multi-disciplinary designer will be crucial in the adaptation of our violence prevention program: The Real Man Challenge (RMC). RMC aims to create small behavioral and social norm changes across many men through the use of conversational WhatsApp groups. The RMC targets the root causes of intimate partner violence by affirming healthy male identity and encouraging men to practice positive behaviors with their partners across the following topics: emotional regulation, communication, consensual sex and shared financial control. Beyond WhatsApp messages, hosts will also share video, audio and other multimedia content that may provide opportunities to generate conversation among group participants that produce behavioral or social norms change. These characteristics—especially the group nature, social accountability and its interactivity— are the reason why the WhatsApp intervention offers the potential to generate larger impact.
RMC is a proven and tested intervention, it has been tested in Liberia and Uganda. This next phase of work will bring the RMC to Latin America, specifically Peru.
