This video tells Funmi's story of how she had to send her son back to Nigeria to be cared for by his grandmother because she could not find or afford child care in Canada.

Funmi has told her story as part of the Rethink Child Care Campaign.

Others are encouraged to tell their stories, make a video and upload them onto the campaign website.

There are also materials avaiable to hold a kitchen table discussion in your community.

"Hosting and participating in these conversations is part of the first phase of a multi-year campaign for public child care in Canada. By hosting a conversation, you can hear one another's stories and make connections with each other. This is an important part of the campaign to rethink child care in Canada".
