Who is a man of quality?

As Padare took its interventions on the Integrated Support Programme to the people in the six districts that it is working in, it took a random sample of participants from its interventions that included consultative meetings with key stakeholders, trainings on gender, trainings on HIV and AIDS and family fun days and asked the participants on their opinions on men of quality (murume chaiye).
