The Fathers x Figures 9k+ piece project is a web3 extension from the NPO, The Fatherhood Network. Our mission is to empower fathers and strengthen families across the world. We do this by 1 on 1 peer support coaching, family friendly activities and events, Dad cafe’s virtual/in person and providing a connection to community resources. Our Genesis fundraising ecosystem will serve as a powerful tool to provide the very first of many scholarships for a "Father Student Athlete" that's currently enrolled in college. Our blueprint to provide utility to our holders is detailed in the sections below. We will also be airdropping additional Tokens to a few holders with extremely rare traits!!
Plenty of us as young or older men have made a decision to seek further education after high school to secure a prominent future for ourselves, our families and our children. With the goal of graduation in mind, what exactly does this journey entail for male students who have children, especially athletes who may or may not be professional prospects in their respective sport? Just to provide some analytical insight, theguardian.com released an article February 18th of 2022 stating that “61% of all student fathers drop out of college without a degree.” The struggles of juggling non-negotiable deadlines and fatherhood are pretty much invisible to the naked eye on any college campus. The article further elaborates that this particular population can be linked to struggling with their finances, childcare cost and fitting children, work and class into the day.
Our focus/intent to combat this issue is to provide a philanthropic base for active collegiate fathers who are in dire need of assistance through their college experience as an athlete, student and father while providing utility to our holders digitally and IRL. The compensation in the form of a scholarship would not infringe on a college’s current contract(s) or commitment with other companies and businesses. The possibilities to create an upwards shift in this realm of education and economic opportunities are vastly endless!
What the Data tells us
61% of student fathers drop out of college compared to the 48% of student mothers
Among the single fathers of color, the dropout rate is 70%
Enrollment has dropped nearly twice as much for men versus women since the start of the pandemic, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.
Women outnumber men in higher education by 59% to 41%
Student fathers are less often brought into programs for student parents and may feel less comfortable asking for help, such as time off when their kids are sick.
