Lydia commented on Are fathers important in raising a successful child?

If children are to grow up well, I believe the involvement of fathers in parenting is key to their success in life. The fatherly love, care and support is missing especially here in Uganda in most communities.

This is one area where support is needed if domestic violence is to reduce.

I like the idea of the film van and drama being used to educate the parents about health, hygiene and nutrition. the issue of mobilizing parents and then giving them questions that they answer in a competition should be taken forward.

I know that when the gifts are given to the best performers in terms of answering questions then they are followed home with the help of government staff to see that the ideas are put into practice and are advised on the challenges they are facing is one way of keeping touch with the beneficiaries.
