This month the GMDC will sign an MOU with the African Fathers Initiative. African Fathers Initiative is an Africa-wide organisation aiming at improving the well-being of children and families by promoting involved, responsible and committed fathers. We aim to build an African consensus that active involved fathers can improve men, women and children’s lives. From our base in Harare, Zimbabwe we involve all men and women who want to know more about the value of fathering and fatherhood initiatives throughout Africa.

Comments, discussions, photos, videos, resources for and about fathers on the African continent are welcome. Our work at the African Fathers Initiative proceeds from an explicit commitment to gender equity. It does not challenge the importance of mothering or mothers’ rights to children, and it highlights the importance of parents working co-operatively for the interests of children. The website for the organisation is .
