Democracy within Households
The family and child protection programmes funded by one foundation were initially focused on children, until they learned from research that in order to effectively improve life outcomes for children, they also needed to work with parents and address gender issues. In order to reach fathers and improve parenting, promoters go to the coffee houses where the men meet. By working directly with fathers, the foundation hopes to inspire a more equal distribution of decision making and caring roles within families and households, in turn demonstrating that an increase in democracy within households yields benefits for all household members.
