The Gift of Fatherhood

Creator: Sonke Gender Justice

Description: Fatherhood is a gift to children, but it’s also a gift to dads. In Khayelitsha, Themba inspires his younger brother, Andrew, who is about to become a father. This short film follows the journey to fatherhood in South Africa, a country where more than half of all children grow up without a father at home. It also highlights the struggles faced by mothers whom are expected, by traditional cultural standards, to care for their home and children.
