Women on the Move is a CARE regional strategy launched in 2016 that mobilizes savings groups in West Africa, which serve as a platform for women and girls to assert their basic rights. In 2019, Women on the Move refocused its work to support the power of women’s collective voice as a formidable means of asserting women’s rights and influencing social transformation at the family, community, and national levels.
Women on the Move aims to economically and socially empower 8 million women and girls by:
- Increasing the number of women and girls joining savings groups in West Africa and, in turn, expanding their social and economic opportunities.
- Multiplying impact by influencing policy change.
- Multiplying the impact of savings groups, whose collective voice and action will help change laws, norms, and harmful gender-specific practices at local, national, and regional levels.
