Welcome to PREPARE.

“Our Vision: Empowering Dads for a Lifetime of Meaningful Fatherhood”

At the PREPARE Foundation, our vision is to empower fathers to thrive in their fatherhood journey, creating a positive and lasting impact on their lives and the lives of their families. We believe that every father has the potential to be a confident, nurturing, and engaged parent, and we strive to provide the tools, resources, and support needed to make this vision a reality.

We envision a world where dads, particularly first time dads, are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to navigate the challenges of childbirth with resilience and joy.

We aim to create a thriving community of empowered fathers who are actively involved in their children’s growth and development from the moment they find out they’re going to be a dad.

We intend to enable fathers to foster healthy relationships with their family to build strong foundations for their children’s future success.

Through our educational programs, resources, and supportive community, we aspire to inspire and guide fathers to become the best version of themselves, creating a ripple effect of positive change in families, communities, and society as a whole.

We want to make a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of first-time dads and their families, shaping a brighter and more inclusive future for fatherhood and society as a whole.
