The Empower Project - CARE

The Empower Project

From 2007-2012, CARE International in Benin, implemented a project called EMPOWER—Enabling Mobilization and Policy Implementation for Women’s Rights. This project, funded by the US government through the US Agency for International Development (USAID) aimed to galvanize a national response to GBV by strengthening support services for survivors and improving policies and laws on gender-based violence and women’s rights more broadly. This brief highlights the experiences and lessons learned from the advocacy and social mobilization work done through this project to rally support for passage of a new anti-GBV law and to increase access to assistance for survivors.
