I was fortunate to participate in the GALS* training and its discussion groups. The facilitator encouraged me to involve my husband. After each session, I would tell him, I was more patient and positive. He got involved too. Our relationship started to change. We can now discuss the family budget together, for example.
*Gender Action Learning System (GALS): this method, developed by Oxfam, places the participants at the heart of the project and makes them think about the place of each one within the couple, the constraints and the opportunities encountered. Planète Enfants & Développement uses it to fight against violence against women in Cambodia.
