Centre for Fathering is a non-profit organisation founded in 2000 to promote active and involved fathering and address issues caused by fatherlessness in Singapore. The organisation aims to turn the hearts of children towards their fathers by empowering more fathers to be better role models and an enduring inspiration to their children. Since 2015, CFF has been the driving force behind Singapore’s nation-wide fathering movement – DADs for Life which seeks to inspire and mobilise fathers to become more involved with and a good influence to their children.
Under the DADs for Life umbrella are initiatives such as Dads@School, Back to School with Dad, Eat With Your Family Day and Celebrating Fathers – to encourage fathers to spend time with their families and create a culture that promotes active fathering.
Dads Adventure Hub
It has long been the dream of the founders of Centre for Fathering to have our own adventure centre for father-child bonding activities. Back then, we started on the right footing by incorporating adventure learning for fathers. It worked beautifully well. However, without facilities of our own, we were dependent on availability of suitable adventure sites for father-child bonding.
Now that we have our own adventure facilities, a number of our dreams can now be fulfilled. I imagine our new facilities to be the centre where fathers know they can get quality father-child bonding activities on a regular basis. The challenge elements (rock wall, maze and ropes course) are all carefully selected based on our experience that both children and fathers would benefit tremendously in building bonds. Each challenge provides a wonderful opportunity for coaching a father and his child to make progress in their relationship.
Beyond father-child bonding, we hope to provide coaching for the fatherless, especially for children who either do not have a father-figure in their lives or whose fathers have not been involved with them. We seek to reconcile troubled children and teens to their fathers and also empower them to be confident in dealing with challenges in their lives.
