As we continue to make changes in our lives to adjust to the reality of COVID-19 within in communities, we also continue to strengthen our support for men and boys. Our mission remains unchanged - creating a nurturing and empowering world for men and boys. It is in doing so that we are able to promote 'Better Relations between Men and Women'.
One of the six pillars of International Men's Day is to promote gender relations and promote gender equality not only for men but for women too. This pillar has influenced the 2021 IMD theme. International Men's Day is observed annually on November 19.
Join us in celebrating men and boys for International Men's Day 2021
Each year we join the global community in honoring and celebrating the positive contributions that male role models make to the society. While we as a global community tackle the pandemic, we join hands and hearts together in observing International Men's Day on November 19. The Family Resource Centre is committed to this cause and has planned several activities for the duration of the month of November. We invite you to join us in celebrating positive male role models within the Cayman Islands community!
We are inviting all entities within our community to organise a Dress for a Cause day on Thursday, November 19, or any other day during the month of November, based on your convenience, to recognise the positive contributions of the men. Entities may access specially designed IMD shirts from the FRC to be a part of their dress-down-day. The day may be used as a fund raising initiative for the Family Resource Centre. All proceeds from the sale of IMD shirts and donations received will go toward programme for men and their well-being.
This second staging of the FRC's 3x3 Basketball Tournament promises to be one for the record books. We have lined up a fun-filled, exciting day of competition between boys and men, guaranteed to be good to the last buzzer. The competition takes place in two (2) divisions for juniors (U12) and open seniors for all other players. What is exciting about our basketball extravaganza is that there must be a minor on court at all times during the senior division. This gives an opportunity for both men and boys to play together in a healthy, competitive manner and build camaraderie. This staging includes live entertainment, a free throw and minute-to-win-it contests and a cash prize of $1000CI. Registration is FREE!
The Men's Voice Documentary is a locally produced documentary focused on highlighting positive male role models and discussing the issues and challenges men face. Men's Voice explores the themes that discuss the socialization of men, men's health, family, cultural influences and highlights opportunities for actionable change. Businesses, churches, community based organisations, civic societies and individuals are welcome to use this educational tool to host a private screening as a way of creating an opportunity for dialogue regarding issues men and boys face in our community.
