New research says SA fathers do take care of their kids

Despite the country having a high rate of absent fathers, many choose to remain involved in meaningful ways in their children’s lives.

South Africa has one of the highest rates of absent fathers in sub-Saharan Africa. As much as 60% of children in the country under the age of 10 don’t live with their biological fathers - the second-highest rate of absence in sub-Saharan Africa - after Namibia. This compares to one-third in the United States.
