SAFRA partners Dads for Life to promote active fatherhood

SAFRA partners Dads for Life to promote active fatherhood

SINGAPORE: It's a happy Father's Day for SAFRA, as it is set to receive S$700,000 from the "Dads for Life" movement to pump up father-friendly activities for its members over the next two years.


Futsal tournament

Supported by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS), the "Dads for Life" movement was launched in 2009 as an initiative of the National Family Council to inspire fathers to take active roles in their children's lives.

Kicking off the activities at SAFRA Tampines on Sunday was a football fiesta that saw fathers teaming up with their sons for a four-a-side futsal tournament.

SAFRA says more than half of its 200,000 members are married, and many of them have children.

That's why it is partnering "Dads for Life" movement to promote active fatherhood.

Senior Parliamentary Secretary Dr Maliki Osman was the guest of honour for the launch of this partnership.

The futsal tournament also brought different families together.

"We (got to) know each other a few weeks ago. When our kids go for (football) training we also had our own training for all the dads!" said Mohamed Norian, a futsal participant.

Dr Maliki said: "The idea is that we encourage our NSmen to understand that they can be effective soldiers as much as they can be effective fathers; they can actually play a very effective role.

"Research has shown that fatherhood is very important, and involvement of fathers is critical in children's development. Activities like today's are a start to show that we can create platforms for fathers and children to come together to interact, to bond."
