Karishma Huda, BRAC Development Institute comments on “Dads and Development” Blog Post by David McKenzie
In comment to a recent World Bank Development Impact blog post by David McKenzie on “Dads and Development”, Karishma Huda points to the Graduation Program’s qualitative research findings in Haiti, India and Pakistan:
“Supportive men helped households to perform well in their enterprises and economically ascend. But, MALE IRRESPONSIBILITY (in this context, drinking and domestic violence) was the biggest drain upon households that didn’t succeed. So, in a nutshell, it’s not enough to just have dads around…the dads need to be responsible, contributing members to the household economy!”
