Defending Dignity. Fighting Poverty.

WHAT WE DO

In 2012 CARE International in Mozambique, conducted a Country Presence Strategic Review to evaluate it role and presence in Mozambique. The study revealed the need for CARE to modify its working approach and act more as a “facilitator, convener and innovator of high impact” initiatives.

To operationalize this strategic shift the agency has opted to put empowerment of Mozambican institutions squarely at the center of its operational approach. Perhaps the most important aspect of CARE International in Mozambique’s new strategic approach is the greater focus on achieving impact at scale through support Mozambican civil society actors to influence policies and programs developed by government departments and other international actors. This transition, in turn, requires that CARE Mozambique increasingly play a role in helping to develop and test innovative models and approaches. It also requires that CARE generates a strong evidence base for innovations that address agriculture, food security, climate change adaptation, gender transformation and rural development challenges being faced in a range of local contexts.

CARE is focusing its work during 2014-2020 on the following three interdependent programme objectives, integrating across traditionally separated sectors:

  1. Enhanced productivity, adaptive capacity and resilience of women and girls dependent on land and natural resources.
  2. Empowered women and girls able to exercise their rights and influence decisions in the private and public spheres.
  3. Empowered CARE and CSO partners’ staff able to promote transformative, rights-based development at scale.
