−Because We Have Daughters Session1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Saturday, December 14, 2013 from 1pm to 5pm at First Afrikan Presbyterian Church.
Men Stopping Violence (MSV) created the Because We Have Daughters® (BWHD) initiative in 2005 to give men an opportunity to begin providing those safety skills.
As a beginning step, BWHD provides a unique opportunity for fathers to learn about their daughters’ realities by sharing fun and educational activities, followed by discussions about any insights they gained from the activities. MSV believes that this helps men understand what it would be like for their daughters, and all women, to live fully and freely without fear of violence.
A BWHD Day, a four hour session, begins with everyone in a circle, playfully getting to know each other and finding out what the day holds. This is followed by the fathers and daughters separating in order to talk about and prepare for the fun activities ahead. The activities fall into one of four categories: shared tasks – like building a bridge – performance, physical games, or arts and crafts. Each activity is designed to help demonstrate the core values of BWHD. The day ends with reflection, appreciation and snacks.
