MenCare: South Africa

In an impoverished township outside of Cape Town, South Africa, a baby is only a month away from coming into the world. As his young father and mother prepare for their first child, his uncle, a single father, shares his thoughts on being a good dad. Poverty, unequal gender roles, violence, and their own family histories can be daunting, but there is hope and joy here. Follow this young family as they embark on the timeless journey: parenthood.
