Making a Difference for Men & Boys

Launched in 1999, and now celebrated in more than 80 countries worldwide, International Men’s Day is going from strength to strength. The theme for IMD 2019 is “Making a Difference for Men and Boys.”

Warwick Marsh from Australia, and coordinator for said, Our mission this year is to help individuals, families, churches, communities, small business and corporates, including NGOs and Government to make a difference for men and boys. 

We want to promote the need to value men and boys and help people make practical improvements in men and boy’s health and well-being.

International Men’s Day encourages men to lead by example. Boys need positive male role models. Our broader community also needs positive male role models. This is the best way to create a fair and safe society which allows everyone the opportunity to flourish.

On the IMD website we provide suggestions on how you can celebrate International Men’s Day, and how to get your local community involved, to create a community event and/or special award ceremony.

November is an important month for the masculine soul because it celebrates several events that are important to men.

Movember is the month dedicated to supporting men’s health. The day following International Men’s Day, 20 November, is International Children’s Day which forms 48 hours of celebration for men, children and the special relationship fathers have with their children.

So, we encourage you to wish everyone a happy International Men’s Day on 19 November.”

Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, founder of International Men’s Day, from Trinidad & Tobago said, “The observances of International Men’s Day are part of a global love revolution.

 International Men’s Day is observed on an annual basis by persons from all walks of life, who support the ongoing effort to improve lives, heal scarred hearts, seek solutions to social problems, mend troubled minds, reform the social outcasts and uplift the dysfunctional.

IMD is designed to promote positive role models in society and develop wholesome individuals.

Such developments are badly needed in today’s wounded communities, which reflect distorted and outdated beliefs and constant clashes among men, women and children. These tensions unravel the fabric of the family and the society.”
