Support Fathers’ Day
Why do we celebrate Father’s Day?
More than four out of five men worldwide will be fathers at some point in their lives. And nearly all men in the world have some connection to children as brothers, uncles, teachers, coaches or simply as friends. A growing and overwhelming body of evidence from the Global confirms that engaged fatherhood is good for children, good for women and good for men themselves. Yet engaging men as caring, involved fathers and caregivers has seldom been the focus of our global efforts to engage men in gender equality.
Therefore the reason for this day is to create a safe ground for fathers to discuss about Father’s experiences in order to promote fathers involvement as active parents, non-violent fathers and caregivers and also to rejuvenate the value of being a father in Uganda and globally.
