Through Building Stronger Fathers, Phi Beta Sigma facilitates the development of educational programs to include teenage pregnancy prevention, health life-styles, prematurity awareness and other health information that helps the male and the family, improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Building Stronger Fathers has three components: 1. Promoting Fatherhood through various educational programming, 2. Raising Funds for March for Babies to prevent birth defects and premature birth, and 3. Mentoring our youth.
Building Stronger Fathers, under the leadership of International President Honorable Micheal E. Cristal, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity continues to break records and make strides to mentor our youth and promote fatherhood in the communities it serves worldwide.
Two babies die every hour in the U.S. And about every 12 hours a woman dies as a result of complications from pregnancy.
It's not fine. That's why we March for Babies.
We march to end maternal death. We march for babies born too soon. We march for babies we have lost. We march for moms-to-be. And we march for health equity.
Join the fight for healthy moms and strong babies, and make a difference for families everywhere!
