Involving fathers in their children’s education is a game changer, improving gender equality in the classroom and beyond.
A group of parents hovers over young children during a reading session at a primary school in Gafumba, a village in the hills of northern Rwanda. The school motto reads: “A complete education for a complete person.”
Most parents in this rural community are unable to read or write, and at the school, involvement of parents — both mothers and fathers — in their children’s education is new.

Parents in Rugarama sector, inspired by how their children were improving their reading, wanted to get involved and make more materials to further support their children’s literacy.
The solution they came up with was that on Thursdays, they sit and manually craft materials that would be used by the Gafumba reading club.
Positive impact the reading club activity at Gafumba Primary school Burera district was having to improve children reading skills, is what some of the parent say have prompted them into action.
