Day 18: Fathers

Many fathers in the developing world yearn to provide for their families but come up short. Those who don’t have enough education or any specialized skills must work long hours in low-wage, temporary jobs that barely cover their families’ basic needs. Common day-labor jobs include construction and farming.
