The Daddy Diaper Drive is one of many projects designed to continually engage fathers in the lives of their children. In our work we understand how fathers are often used to hightlight family problems. Our challege is to ensure that these same dads are looked at with respect to being part of the solution.
Research clearly points out that families are more likely to be poor when fathers are not engaged. This points out the critical need to engage them in every aspect of provision. Including engaging them in an active deployment of services that recognizes fathers too are in need of chariable attention.
