Project Example

REAL Fathers Initiative

The primary objective of the Responsible, Engaged and Loving (REAL) Fathers Initiative is to develop and test a set of interventions to reduce intimate partner violence and harsh punishment of children among young fathers (ages 16-25) in post-conflict northern Uganda.

The pilot project involved fathers between the ages of 16 and 25 years who are parenting a child between the ages of one and three years old. The scale-up project’s goal was to test a model for scale up of the successful pilot through economic strengthening, child care and development programming integration.
