There is a terrible impact on the absence of responsible fathers in the household. Macho cultures praises men who have children with different women without committing themselves. As consequence, in many cases, mothers end up seduced by crime and many end up in prison.
This project is not only about the incompetence of the State in care for its citizens. It's also about the responsibilities men should take toward their families and, consequently, communities. Sharing tasks in the household prevents children and women being target for criminals. It keeps our future more humane.
My father was an alcoholic who could not look after himself or his family. My mother, who could not keep up with the pressure, abandoned me. I witnessed violence at early age and was seen as a burden rather than a joy. When I moved to live with an aunt – who late adopted me – I experienced love and care. I was surrounded by women, and women made the man I am today. I am very grateful.
