Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2021, 11:59 PM

As a staff with Centre for Fathering for the past 3 years, I've been blessed with good colleagues, & have had the privilege to have crossed paths with many other dads in the community, being blessed with their sharing of their own personal parenting journey.

It has empowered me to reflect, improve & be more aware of my own parenting skills, as I tackle the daily, weekly, monthly & yearly challenges of raising 2 children, my 9 yr old boy & 6 yr old girl, together with my lovely & supportive wife.

2 years ago, it hit me that as I get older & "weaker", my children are also getting older, but stronger & more active, & if I did not do anything to improve my overall health, no matter how much my heart and mind wants to be involved with them or to encourage them, my body would not be able to keep up. Plus I want to see my future grandchildren!

Thus I've been on a 2 year quest so far in making positive and healthy changes to my diet and lifestyle. As I recently bloomed 42 this July, I'll be attempting to run my first ever full marathon this Friday, 30 July 2021, from 5pm onwards, & to raise funds for Centre for Fathering.

Please support the good work that Centre for Fathering has been doing & will continue to do by giving generously to the cause. I thank everyone in advance!

Taking care of our own health, be it mental or physical health, is crucial, so let us take baby steps towards a healthier and holistic lifestyle.

I run for family & health!

About The Charity

The Centre for Fathering (CFF) is a non-profit founded in 2000 to promote active & involved fathering, and address issues caused by fatherlessness in Singapore. For more than 20 years, CFF has helped countless families, beginning with fathers, through workshops and experiential programmes conducted in schools, communities, prisons, religious organisations & corporate companies.

Our four annual flagship campaigns, 'Back To School With Dad', 'Eat With Your Family Day', 'Paktor with Mom', and 'Celebrating Fathers', encourage fathers to be present with their families.

CFF also champions the DADs for Life movement to inspire fathers to be good influencers of their children, and a father figure to those who do not have fathers.

Marriage is a partnership and men can become even better fathers with their wives' support. Mums and Dads play irreplaceable and complementary roles in parenting. In 2019 DADs for Life partnered with a group of mother volunteers to launch another national ground up movement; MUMs for Life, to complement the work of DADs for Life.

MUMs for Life celebrates a Mum's identity as daughter, woman, wife and mother. When Mums are confident in their unique identity and multiple roles, they can better nurture our children and support Dads in building a stronger family in an increasingly complex world.
