I found myself bound to work for a contractor although it pays so little because I could not face my children and tell them I had no job, and that is why I could not provide them with clothing and food. Helping men to become and stay engaged with their children is a priority in several government policies and programmes run by civil society organizations CSOs. Once a father recognizes his children, the state requires that he supports them, whether or not he is married to the mother, or lives with his children.

Economic support In South Africa, like in many other countries, tax exemptions are allowed for children, and child support is tax deductible. South Africa has an extensive social security system to protect vulnerable individuals from destitution and to support families to care for children.

An old-age pension facility forms a critical source of support for poor children, and most of the money is spent food, clothing and school fees Case et al, Currently, 8 million South African children benefit from this support. However, for a variety of reasons, including lack of knowledge and accessibility, very few fathers take up the grant, even when they are the primary caregiver of an eligible child Case et al, Social support Under Apartheid, customary marriage was not legally recognized.

A maintenance order could not be made against a person who was not present. Men could thus, and did, evade maintenance orders, leaving women to support children alone Bonthuys, The requirement for fathers to support children, however, exists alongside their right to see their children. As Khunou points out, custody arrangements favour mothers, and children may suffer when parents get embroiled in protracted conflict over paternal maintenance and access to his children.

In , the Congress of South African Trade Unions COSATU demanded five days paid paternity leave and 20 days paid compassionate and family responsibility leave, noting that men have a responsibility and right to play a role in child rearing, including being supportive to their partner when a child is born. South African legislation now provides for three days paternity leave, but government recognizes the need to extend paternity leave so men can share responsibilities, and allow men more time to bond with their babies.

A National Family Policy drafted by Department of Social Development in and circulated for discussion has been criticized, amongst others, for the ways in which it deals with men and fatherhood. Hochfeld argues that the subject of fathers is not given serious attention in the draft policy beyond noting the general trend of father absence and the threat men pose for women and children as a result of violence.

While it is true that alarge number of fathers are absent, tend to take little direct responsibility for domestic and childcare family chores, and are responsible for substantial violence and harm in families,their position in families is still significant. The South African policy contrasts with that in, for example, Britain, which portrays men as resources for their children Featherstone Some, such as Fathers Speak Out and Men as Partners, have as their primary focus reaching men and fathers.

It opened the project with a photographic exhibition that travelled the country, accompanied by debates and participatory events. With extensive media coverage, Brothers For Life is the first national effort that brings together government and civil society to mobilise men across the country to speak out, take action and try to make a positive contribution towards bringing men strongly into the fight against HIV.

A man who takes responsibility for his actions. A man who chooses a single partner over multiple chances with HIV. A man whose self-worth is not determined by the number of women he can have. A man who makes no excuses for unprotected sex, even after drinking. A man who supports his partner and protects his children. A man who respects his woman and never lifts a hand to her.

A man that knows that the choices we make today will determine whether we see tomorrow. Implications for work with children Many young children enter out-of-home child care, preschools, and formal education from families that are dispersed or re-constituted, living with separated parents, step-parents or single parents Richter, As already observed, men may desert their ichildren out of shame for not being able to provide for them.

These messages are important for men to hear, especially for the many men who are not able to provide materially for their children as a result of unemployment or disability. Moreover, many men including relatives, step-fathers, or foster-fathers, among other others, play the role of father.

Children need and want the care of men in their lives. They value the idea of a father or a father-figure.

Being usually taught to respect men, children want to spend time with, learn from, and be guided by them. Children appreciate hearing from their fathers and knowing that their fathers care about them. Men need to be kind to their children and not hurt them. Men are so much bigger and stronger than children. Their strength should be used to protect children from harm everywhere: in the neighbourhood, at school, on public transport systems, and in the home.

Young fathers benefit from staying in contact with their children. Young men who are involved with their children make more effort to protect themselves from harm and to be economically active as a result of knowing that the child they love depends on them.
