Since 2015, Centre for Fathering has been the driving force for Singapore’s nationwide 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 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.

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. That is why DADs for Life partnered with a group of mother volunteers to launch a national ground-up movement – MUMs for Life, on Mothers’ Day 2019 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.
