What makes THM so effective?
The process is well-founded in theory and practice, but the work with families involves going to individual households and doing practical exercises which are easy to understand, and produce quick and visible results as families implement the changes they agree on.
Men who may find it challenging to see how their wives are unfairly burdened nonetheless may have observed as children how their own mothers were overworked and disempowered. When these insights are supported they can be powerful drivers of change.
We see the profound impact of women becoming more involved with decisions on how money will be used, and also see men taking on tasks such as cooking, typically seen as a woman’s work,.
THM’s impact is inter-generational
Everyone participates, including older relatives and children who are old enough to understand how things work in the home.
The result of this is long-lasting inter-generational change, with children and young adults learning new behaviours to replace the traditional attitudes they may have seen adults perpetuating.
