The Bangalore-headquartered NGO is organizing father's day here Sunday to create awareness on shared parenting and joint custody.

He said the organization was also planning to launch signature campaign across the country. It will submit a representation on the problems faced by divorced fathers to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
