Country Info

CARE is one of the world's largest private international humanitarian organizations, committed to helping families in poor communities improve their lives and achieve lasting victories over poverty. The organization was founded in 1945, when 22 American organizations came together to rush lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. CARE quickly became a trusted vehicle for the compassion and generosity of millions. Originally located in New York City, we moved our headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1993. We are located at 151 Ellis Street, NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30303-2440 USA.

TESFA Results

Image (media): 

TESFA’s goal is to improve economic, and sexual and reproductive health outcomes for ever-married adolescent girls in Ethiopia. CARE Ethiopia and its partners implemented the program, and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) evaluated it.  TESFA relies on peer-education within small group settings modeled on CARE’s village savings and loans (VSLA) approach. Community support is provided by groups of 20 to 30 community members, who meet once a month to discuss how to support girls and receive their own training on gender and health.

TESFA Brief

TESFA is a 3 year project funded by the Nike Foundation that works to improve economic, and sexual and reproductive health outcomes for ever‐married adolescent girls in Ethiopia.
