Being a father

A coalition of 10 NGOs launched a campaign "Being a father", which aims to support women in their most important role, namely to be fathers. For child development play a huge role and the mother and father.

The challenge of being a father means putting forward the interests of the child. When the father manifests security, respect, understanding and respect for the individual child develop confidence, self-esteem and independence. In the process, the father is a role model and this role is crucial for the growth of the child and educating him as a person who will have the skills to cope with the difficulties in the way of development.
