Usapho Foundation has recently started a Fatherhood Program at De Novo Treatment Centre in Kraaifontein. This program is based on the Positive Parenting Coaching Program that has been devised by Usapho Foundation. This program pays specific attention to the role of fathers in the home and family, as absenteeism due to chosen as well as unforeseen circumstances is rife in our society. This program aims to help fathers assist in building their children’s self-esteem and in a safe environment, how to make healthy choices regarding their lives and well-being. It also adds to the value that father’s often do not realize and the impact that their presence and being present in their children’s lives has. Usapho Foundation wishes to impact these fathers positively, thereby adding meaning, growth and worth to families and ultimately reaching our aim of “Creating a strong nation by building better families”.
