Fathers in Africa is a non-profit organisation that supports all fathers to be actively and positively engaged in their children’s lives. Our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of all children and all families.




What We Do
We develop and delivers specialised education, support and mentoring programs for fathers that are uniquely father-focused, including fatherhood mentoring sessions, expectant and new fathers groups and indigenous fathers circles. We work together with government and the private sector to deliver these education materials and aim to create trainers that train others. Insodoing, we impact more and more families across South Africa.

(We are also the founder of The Fatherhood Festival, a unique 3-day community event held over the Fathers Day weekend that brings people and families together to question, explore and publicly celebrate the role of fatherhood.)

Our Values
Fathers in Africa is dedicated to building healthy communities by enriching the lives of fathers, their children and their families. We support mothers and fathers as earners and carers.

Our Work
Our work spans the country, into both formal and rural communities.
