Оn 6 April, the ‘Tatohub.Kyiv’ Fathers’ Club started operating online with EU support. It is addressed to fathers in Kyiv who would like to become more conscious and responsible parents by sharing childcare and household responsibilities with their spouses or partners.

‘Tatohub.Kyiv’ is the third club for fathers to be launched in Ukraine as the part of the ‘EU 4 Gender Equality: Together against gender stereotypes and gender-based violence’ programme, funded by the European Union and implemented jointly by UN Women and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The first two clubs were launched at the end of 2020 in Odesa and Vinnytsia.

The ‘Tatohub.Kyiv’ club aims to support men in overcoming gender stereotypes and to promote gender equality by providing information about improving partner relations, providing childcare, understanding child psychology, and learning how to spend meaningful leisure time with children and to distribute household chores equally.

Tatohub.Kyiv is managed by the Ukrainian Foundation of Public Health, UNFPA Ukraine’s project implementing partner, and will operate in partnership with Kyiv City Council to tackle, among others, the needs of vulnerable fathers and fathers with disabilities.
