The Australian Federation of Men's Health & Wellbeing Associations Inc.
Our associations are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of men and boys and to create a better world for all.
Pathways Foundation - runs the "Pathways to Manhood" nationwide rites of passage program for adolescent boys with their fathers (or significant male). A week long bush camp experience that acknowledges and honours this major transition of a boy entering into the world of men in a healthy way. It also supports and acknowledges the profound changes that the young man's mother and father need to adjust to. Many of the MKP Australia warriors are actively involved in this important community project, both as participants and facilitators. Two of the founders are intitiated warrriors.
The Pathways programme has desired outcomes that include:
Increased self esteem
Improved communication and leadership skills
Decreased harmful behaviour such as drug and alcohol abuse
Decreased youth suicide
Better results at school
Healthier and more stable families
The Pathways to Manhood programme was developed by men interested and concerned about the health and wellbeing of boys and young men in Australia. These men believe that boys need a range of adult men as role models, confidants, mentors, heroes and friends who will journey with them as they develop their male identity and thus grow into balanced integrated men themselves.

Totals 334 386 47 13
Increase Total 52.
Of interest is the following:
Increase All countries with the exception of the following.
No change Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Uganda
Loss American Samoa, Fiji, Kenya, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea , United Kingdom.
This represents an increase of 52since November 2016 Online Group members.
Sadly we lost 13 online members Internationally. We will pray that they return and try again to overcome SSA.
A few countries are bucking the trend in their respective countries and this is represented in their figures.
Philippines, Singapore and Thailand are continuing to grow regardless of their openness to "selling sex" now seen as a tourist commodity and unacceptable in the sight of almighty God. Please pray that more people will see the light and desire freedom.
Iran sadly displays an open rejection to SSA. which is punishable by execution. However, almighty God is opening a door for that country to share their concerns and frustrations with SSA. Covert underground church related activity has increased the number of anonymous members to 19 which is an increase 04 members since November 2016.
The online anonymity seems to be helping members by holding firm to their confidences and yet at the same time, opening up to much needed sharing with others who are experiencing the same or similar concerns in the lives as far as SSA goes. I am likewise seeing a deepening of Christian understandings by a number within the Group. This is a very difficult thing to achieve given the backgrounds that some have come from given the countries that they live in and the pressures that they live under such as Islamic and other beliefs that have ruled their lives. It is a blessing to see these men opening their hearts to receive the Gospel and indeed starting to talk freely about almighty God. One of the joys is that so many have returned to church commitment and are growing even stronger in the daily and spiritual walks.
The Lord is continuing to do a mighty work of grace in the above mentioned countries. Oftentimes I have no knowledge as to how these dear souls happen to come across JASON, but I am pleased they do. There is so much hurt, suffering and pain being experienced by these members that they are crying for help and turning to Jesus Christ to turn them from SSA to that which is beautiful in His sight.
I now have assistance that is making this task somewhat lighter on myself. Thank you Jesus.
Let us together uphold these dear people and their countries before the throne of grace and seek blessings on them all from almighty God.
Kia tau te aroha noa ki a koe. Amine.

Totals 368 454 96 10
Of interest is the following.
1. The following new countries joined the Group. Bangladesh, Brazil, Peru. Solomon Islands.
2. Losses totalled 10 in numbers. We hope and pray that these dear souls will return to the Group and grow in the love of Jesus and accept a more complete understanding of SSA.
3. An incredible growth of 96 members is surely all praise to Almighty God. The interesting part of growth comes from
A 4 new countries bringing 25 new members.
B Incredible growth in Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. These countries are sadly rampant with “rent boys”. Slowly this is being exposed as unhealthy for all concerned.
4 Iran although sadly adverse to SSA, we note a healthy increase by 3 which is amazing given the pressure this country remains under.
The on-line anonymity seems to be helping members by holding firm to their confidences and yet at the same time, opening up to much
Christian understanding and acceptance is increasing with members and a
number have surrendered their hearts to Jesus as a result.
With your permission Robert I would like to appoint 6 OVA members who are well verses in SSA and are trusted by the Assembly in all ways to assist in looking after close on 500 SSA members. I should mention that these members of OVA are qualified to undertake the difficulty of this task. This will be of no value to OVA other than in hearing the cries and needs of these poor souls and the offer of guidance. Please advise me Robert.
May almighty God bless you all with love and blessings.
