Father Support Program
AÇEV has implemented its Father Support Program (FSP) since 1996 to support fathers in assuming responsibility in child care, building democratic relationships with their children and actively contributing to their children’s development. With the FSP, we reached more than 60,000 fathers in 21 years.
The FSP targets literate fathers of all education levels who have 3 to 11 year-old children. The FSP aims to raise fathers’ awareness on the kind of support they can provide for their children’s healthy development, empowering fathers with knowledge on child development and parenting. We implement this program with a vision of more democratic behaviors in families with fathers spending more time and building a healthier communication with their children; being more knowledgeable on their children’s needs, and transforming their behaviors into being more violence-free.
