The Global Parenting Initiative (GPI) is committed to integrating gender-transformative approaches into its programmes to promote gender equality and reduce violence against women and children. A key part of this strategy involves recognising the essential role that fathers and male caregivers play in children’s positive development.

To foster male engagement in parenting interventions, GPI combines evidence-based research with targeted implementation strategies. This includes systematic reviews and comparative analyses to understand male involvement, the creation of quantitative and qualitative measures to track male engagement, and the design of inclusive messaging, content, and recruitment strategies.

This webinar will explore the evolving landscape of young fatherhood, focusing on young fathers aged 25 and under. The event will highlight the paradigm shift towards acknowledging the diverse realities of young fathers and advocating for their inclusion in societal conversations and policies. By examining the multifaceted aspects of young fatherhood- parenting, relationships, education, employment, and housing.

Join us to envision a future where young fathers are valued, supported, and empowered to fulfill their potential as parents and active members of society.
