CARE began operations in Mozambique in 1984 with emergency assistance and food distribution for people who were affected by the protracted war between government and rebel forces.
In our six year country strategy (2014-2020) for Mozambique, CARE seeks to fight poverty and improve food and nutrition security by empowering women and girls to exercise their rights. This new strategy draws from CARE’s previous innovations and builds on them – emphasizing in particular CARE’s expanded role as a facilitator and development partner with Mozambican colleagues from civil society who are likewise dedicated to transformative, rights-based development in collaboration with the private sector and government.

Every child has the right to a family, to health and education, and I am one of them. I have the right to dream of the future. I was happy when I entered high school.
“I have never used a camera before, and I have neither seen myself in a photo or in a mirror”, was one of the first things volunteer Rita said to me when I started my training on photography and storytelling in a small village close to Funhalouro, in the South of Mozambique.
Joaquina and Relia have been neighbors in a little village close to Funhalouro in the Southeast of Mozambique for many years. The two friends spend hours to fetch water every day. Their village has no running water, no electricity and the nearest hospital is hours away.
