We are going to start off our Monthly Reflection piece with this video about the power of fatherhood in transforming men’s lives. This moving video comes from our colleagues in Brazil and it is about one man’s lifelong goal to be a father.

According to MenCare, 4 out of 5 men will be fathers at one point in their lives.* This fact creates a real opportunity to expand our domestic violence and sexual violence prevention efforts to this realm, as caregiving has the power to transform deep seated beliefs about violence.
