Our efforts include working with men and boys as champions of change, and facilitating debates to challenge gender norms and renegotiate more equitable relationships.
What about men and boys?
CARE fights poverty around the world by empowering girls and women. Girls and women are disproportionately affected by poverty, so fighting poverty effectively requires focus on them. But boys and men are and will always remain central to CARE’s work.
Our community-based efforts to improve education, health and economic opportunity for girls and women don’t just benefit those girls and women. They benefit the boys and men around them – their husbands, sons, brothers and fathers.
Poverty is directly connected to gender inequality. Men and boys in the communities where we work increasingly understand this and are vital partners in our programs to empower girls and women. The communities where men and boys are most actively engaged in our work, real and lasting change is more likely to take hold; change that benefits everyone.
