CARE’s work in Thailand began in 1979, initially responding to the Cambodian refugee influx along Thailand’s borders. The Raks Thai Foundation (the local name of CARE in Thailand) became a member of CARE International on January 2003, becoming the first CARE member from a developing country.
This report is an analytical review of CARE’s programs and projects undertaken with partners and allies in 16 countries over the period 2005–2010. It explores CARE’s principal strategies for achieving positive impact by drawing on a broad range of evaluations and other assessments produced over the period.
Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread – but least recognized – human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one out of three women will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This violence is happening to our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters around the world.
This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.
