You may recognize the always smiling face of our resident agriculture expert Kato Robert. As a father, and a Shanti employee, Kato believes that parents have an important and special role to play. Kato believes that #MomsMatter and he’d like to tell you why. This is the fourth #MomsMatter story. This is Kato Robert. “My parents left us when we were young, and my brother Charles dropped out of school to work and take care of us. Charles worked very hard, and has just completed his masters. He is married with children and has paid his wife’s school fees - : she is now a midwife. They are in a good condition, and when I look at him I work hard and respect him very much” says Kato.
For Kato parents have a special role to play. As a father he is proud of his 3 girls and 1 boy; they have a special routine where he visits them at school, they welcome him, and he gives them a sweet. His oldest, 9-year-old Edith, brags about how much she looks like him at school. “They are all definitely jokesters like me. More so” Kato told us with a big grin on his face. “Fathers care, but mothers always care more” says Kato. “While the father has to work, she is with the kid 24/7. Even if she’s working she has to go with the kid. It is her who feeds him, teaches him how to eat and speak, and it is her who cares the most. She even gives them their first words, like mama.” We ended by asking Kato about his happiest moment. “That is a hard question because I am always happy” says Kato “but everybody around me is what keeps me happy.” We hope you will look out for our next #MomsMatter story released next Tuesday. #MomsMatter to us, why do they matter to you?
All proceeds this holiday season go to our new birth rooms to help provide better care to our mothers. #MomsMatter to us.
