Global Men’s Community:
This website aims to bring all Men’s Groups across the World – regardless of purpose, focus or structure – under one Global roof. In part, the purpose of this site is to highlight the strength and growth of the Men’s Group movement globally. But primarily the goal is to make Men’s Groups more accessible to men around the World. See Directory map here.
Our belief is that when men participate in Men’s Groups they become more grounded yet lighter; stronger yet gentler; as they deepen their awareness of themselves and the way they live their lives, they become more able to manage their emotions and more at ease with expressing themselves. Men’s Groups support men to become the source of wisdom, purpose, compassion and inspiration they long to be, and that the world desperately needs.

We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a Global scale, year round. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the World.

We know that Men’s health is worse than women’s in most parts of the world. Recent World Health Organization (WHO) data shows that, globally, male life expectancy at birth in 2015 was 69 years; for females, it was 74 years. Women on a worldwide basis live 5 years longer than men. We know that over 95% of work place fatalities are men and that 99% of combat deaths are men.
We also know that in most countries around the World the suicide rate for men is worse than women, the rate of suicide for men is up to three times that of women. In Russia it is 6 men for every 1 woman. Most people know that men suffer unfair discrimination in family law in most countries of the World and in western nations men and boys are dropping behind in school and university…
