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 aim of the Pathways to Manhood programme is twofold. The first is to assist in the transition from boy to young man which is a critical period in the life of any teenage boy. The second is to inspire our boys to have a vision and reach their potential.

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.

Update Nov 14th, 2016


I forgot to add the important part of my update, the figures.

Please find the correct report as follows.

23) United States of America 04 08 +4

Totals 290 334 +46 -2

Of interest is the following:

Increase All countries with the exception of the following.

No change Australia, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Sudan

Loss New Zealand, Kenya

This represents an increase of 46 since August 2016 Online Group members.

Sadly we lost 2 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:

Philippines 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 is sadly displays an open rejection of SSA. However, almighty God is opening a door for that country to share their concerns and frustrations with SSA.

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.

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.

Let us together uphold these dear people and their countries before the throne of grace and seek blessings on them all from almighty God.

God bless.
