Her body – her choice
Family planning and protection against gender-based violence and sexual harassment are important rights for women. Nobody except the woman herself should be able to make decisions involving her body.
Her voice – her dreams
Rights to contribute to decisions in local communities lead to increased gender equality and economic growth for the nation.
CARE is already present in many communities - so we can start life-saving assistance immediately when diasasters happen.
