===Purpose and Approach===
  
Michael Makoto Honda (Japanese: 本田 実 born June 27, 1941) is an American Democratic politician. He currently serves as Congressman for California's 15th congressional district, which encompasses Silicon Valley. (map)
+
Men as Partners (MAP) is a program that focuses on approaching men in a respectful and open-minded way and is geared towards getting them to analyze how their negative attitudes, values, and behaviors may be causing more harm than good. The program promotes equality, responsibility, honesty, and respect for all. More specifically lessons will address HIV/AIDS and STIs, gender equality, relationships, family planning, and sexuality. These are areas that have been traditionally focused on women, but the hope is that by involving those who hold the power we will see positive changes in behavior.
  
A Japanese American, Honda was born in Walnut Grove, California in 1941 and spent his early childhood in Granada War Relocation Center, an internment camp in Colorado. His family became strawberry sharecroppers in Blossom Valley in San Jose after their return in 1953.
+
===Objective===
  
Honda graduated from San Jose High Academy and then San Jose State University in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in biological sciences and Spanish and earned a master's degree in 1974. From 1965 to 1967 he served in the United States Peace Corps, working in El Salvador.
+
MAP was created in South Africa in 1998 by Engender Health and the Planned Parenthood Association of South Africa. The MAP program has two main goals:
  
Honda became a science teacher and went on to serve as the principal at two public schools. In 1971, Honda was appointed by San Jose Mayor Norman Mineta to San Jose's Planning Commission, and won election to the San Jose Unified School Board in 1981. He was a member of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors (1990) and the California State Assembly (1996–2001).
+
1. Challenge the attitudes, values, and behaviors of men that harm their own health, safety, and wellbeing and that of women and children.
  
Honda was elected to the U.S. House as a Democrat in 2000, succeeding Republican Tom Campbell. From 2001 to 2006, he served as a member of the Science Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. In 2007, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi appointed Honda to the influential Appropriations Committee. Honda also serves as Regional Whip for Northern California and Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.
+
2. Encourage men to become actively involved in preventing gender-based violence, the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS, and unwanted pregnancies.
  
Honda is most famous for introducing resolution AJR 27, which demanded that Japan apologize for its actions in WWII and compensate its victims.
+
To achieve its goals, the MAP program is now working globally in various countries. Our MAP program will be following a specific manual created to be used in Ghana. PEPFAR has also recognized MAP as a Gender Norms Initiative to reduce the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS.
  
Rep. Honda has consistently supported the causes of civil rights groups, such as the NAACP and Human Rights Campaign. However, he has drawn criticism for his refusal to criticize human rights violations in China, a stand he explains by saying that he believes "things can change" in the country. Honda visited China in 2001.
+
===Action Plan===
  
In November 2004 Honda was among a small group of politicians and lawmakers who were invited to spend the evening with Presidential candidate John Kerry in Boston on election night. [1]

 +
# Write the PEPFAR proposal after developing your budget, including the cost of securing the venue.
 +
# Develop a list of invitees.
 +
# Buy supplies and organize the venue.
 +
# Have the workshop.
  
On February 12, 2005, he was elected a vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee under the chairmanship of Howard Dean. His term is expected to last until 2009.
+
===Budget===
  
On May 15, 2007 Honda was initiated into the San Francisco Lodge of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance. He is the first regular member of the organization who is not of Chinese ancestry.[1]

Men As Partners (MAP)

Purpose and Approach

Men as Partners (MAP) is a program that focuses on approaching men in a respectful and open-minded way and is geared towards getting them to analyze how their negative attitudes, values, and behaviors may be causing more harm than good. The program promotes equality, responsibility, honesty, and respect for all. More specifically lessons will address HIV/AIDS and STIs, gender equality, relationships, family planning, and sexuality. These are areas that have been traditionally focused on women, but the hope is that by involving those who hold the power we will see positive changes in behavior.

Objective

MAP was created in South Africa in 1998 by Engender Health and the Planned Parenthood Association of South Africa. The MAP program has two main goals:

1. Challenge the attitudes, values, and behaviors of men that harm their own health, safety, and wellbeing and that of women and children.

2. Encourage men to become actively involved in preventing gender-based violence, the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS, and unwanted pregnancies.

To achieve its goals, the MAP program is now working globally in various countries. Our MAP program will be following a specific manual created to be used in Ghana. PEPFAR has also recognized MAP as a Gender Norms Initiative to reduce the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS.

Action Plan

  1. Use the MAP manual to develop your itinerary.
  2. Write the PEPFAR proposal after developing your budget, including the cost of securing the venue.
  3. Develop a list of invitees.
  4. Buy supplies and organize the venue.
  5. Have the workshop.

Budget

  • Requested Funds = $129 (70% of total)
For chairs, minerals (refreshments), biscuits (snacks), folders, notebooks, pens, tape and printing fees.
  • Community Contributions = $52 (30% of total)
For Flip charts, markers, condoms (boxes) and wooden penises.

PC Resources

  • Men As Partners (MAP) Manual (Request from Accra office.)

Project Reflection and Sustainability

  • It is beneficial to have both a female and male PCV organize the workshop to add a different perspective to a lot of the issues that are discussed.
  • Keep the workshops small (20-25 men) and have more than one if you have a lot of people interested.
  • In addition, invite an array of men; from their 20s to 70s; fathers and sons; married and bachelors; with and without children; farmers, shop keepers, preachers, etc.. The more diversified the group, the more issues that will be brought to light.
  • The workshop was given in English and that also really help because there wasn't a translator constantly repeating everything.
