The Takalani Male Care-givers project is a pilot that seeks to mitigate the effects of stereotypes which allocate care and play activities to female care-givers only and encourage men (including fathers) to play with their children in ways that stimulate cognitive development. The 12 module course has been executed with mixed success across Manley Flats and Siyazama School in terms of uptake from the men who were the intended recipients. However, at both sites, the collective community has embraced and enjoyed the play-based activities.
