Your stories fuel our passion.
The crisis of fatherlessness can feel overwhelming, but your stories encourage us to keep developing content, training fathers and forging a world where fathers take responsibility, are emotionally connected to their families and practice love that has no roots in fear or shame.
We will be featuring a number of stories here over the next few months — if you’d like to encourage the world with how TWNAF has impacted you, hit the button below. We’d love to hear from you!
Noel came from a broken family and literally grew up on the streets. Hear how his story impacted his future as a father and leader in Manila.
These four men from the Rhino refugee camp in Uganda come from similarly challenging backgrounds, but still share stories of hope and renewal.
Savuth discovered the life-changing impact the TWNAF content has on a father’s ability to create a more beautiful life for his family. This is his story.
Ed’s father died early and he really felt the lack of male role models in his life, but after joining a TWNAF conference he was able to set his life as a parent on a whole new course.
We’ve been building families through training and mentoring since 2011. We’ve shared hours, stories and tears with people from all walks of life representing over 100 countries. We’ve worked with specialists, researchers, doctors, scientists, governments and presidents. We’ve done the research.
We have absolutely no doubt.
Fatherlessness is aN
Our movement is built on the passion of volunteers around the world, people who also bear the profound markers of the impact of their father figure.
People who don’t want their children to grow up with the same wounds.
THEY ARE THE GLOBAL RESPONSE
We are responding to this crisis in three ways:
Building a global network of trainers
We have three training levels aimed at helping men grow start by building a solid foundation in our content, maturing into master mentors capable of overseeing a network of 1000+ trainers in their country. The three levels are:
- Dads Talk — Helping fathers understand the basics of manhood and fatherhood and giving them the tools to apply the principles in their lives and those of their families.
- Fatherhood Facilitator — Equipping fathers who have been through levels one or two with the tools to train other fathers
- Master Mentor — Taking men who have completed a fatherhood facilitator training and are already training other fathers to the next level. This training goes deep into the course material, giving the trainers a broad and deep understanding of the content, and how to apply it in training.
Creating communities of practice
Research consistently shows that the best way to learn is to practice and to teach. To that end, we put a high emphasis on developing communities of fathers around the world who share what they’ve learned, encourage each other, and strengthen the movement from the ground up.
These communities are encouraged by local trainers and coordinators, but there is no formal structure they have to follow; the goal is for fathers to connect and share in a manner and time that works best for them. We provide resources for anyone who asks, but we encourage the coordinators and master mentors in each country to build momentum in a way that is most appropriate for their context.
We believe the training content we have developed is life-changing, and we want any trainer or person who wants to become a better father to have access to it for free. The only time we charge for trainings is to cover costs, and any profits made go back into building the movement.
You can find all of our training content by clicking the button below, along with many of the books we recommend and YouTube playlists of videos we use in trainings. We are also constantly creating new resources, so keep that page bookmarked — any new content will be added there.
TRAINING FATHERS IS THE ENGINE DRIVING US
but it isn’t the only way we’re tackling fatherlessness.
The Mother Design
The Mother Design was developed in response to an outpouring of desire from the wives of men who had been to a TWNAF training.

Early Childhood Development
The first five years of a child presents us with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. How a child is nurtured and what they experience during this time plays a critical role in determining how they develop and how much of their potential they are able to access.
