Working with fathers
Fathers Matter aims to strengthen community organisations, groups and churches that want to promote the positive active presence of fathers, by providing resources and tools that can help men become better fathers.
Where do I get resources and tools about fatherhood?
Our aim is to equip and connect individuals and organisations who champion fathers. Here are some tools that may help you strengthen your work.
Get tips on WhatsApp
Our research identified a skills and information gap that fathers often experience on their fatherhood journey. The Fathers Matter WhatsApp platform was developed to bridge that gap by providing practical tips to fathers on how they can be more positively involved in their children’s lives at every life stage of their children’s journey.
Fathers can WhatsApp “Hi” to 060 058 2107 to access the tips.
