2002, at the Nyarugusu refugee camp in Tanzania.
As horrific stories of rape, dismemberment and slaughter shook Cassie to his core, one thing became inescapably clear — there had to be a deeper catalyst for this brokenness than what initially met the eye.
15 years of interaction with leaders around the world, hundreds of hours of research and thousands of meetings later, we are even more convinced that fatherlessness wasn’t just an issue facing those refugees.

IT IS THE ISSUE

“Virtually every major social pathology has been linked to fatherlessness.”


Stephen Baskerville

WE BELIEVE
THERE IS A SOLUTION

Founded on common sense and the principles for healthy family we find in the Bible, The World Needs A Father is about training communities of men to understand the value of their roles as fathers, and giving them the tools to train other men around them, so that as heaven splashes down in their home, the ripples flow through their community.
