This article was published yesterday about the increased role fathers are taking in caregiving. I thought it might of interest to you.

This is fantastic!
Thank you for highlighting such an important piece of the child rearing puzzle! Including fathers in the earliest parts of life is beneficial to so many, the children, mothers, fathers, and the community!

Hands to Hearts, Int. provided trainings to mothers and fathers with our ECD curriculum a couple year ago. We would love to reach out and see if there are any ways we can collaborate!

Hi Natalie,

Thank you for your comments!

Our trainers are all local facilitators, familiar with the local culture and context that women are parenting in. All our materials are based on basic human development (when babies hit milestones, etc) and then adapted to the appropriate local context with songs, stories, habits, etc.

We are very sensitive to the local conditions are take all precautions to avoid cultural misunderstandings in our work, because you are absolutely correct, child rearing can be a very touchy subject!

Thanks again and Happy New Year!!

Jessica
