Learning from Youth in West Africa in COVID-19

In July 2020, volunteers from the West Africa CARE Youth Network decided to learn more about what young women and men are experiencing in COVID-19, and how that should shape CARE’s response and our advocacy interests. This team interviewed 128 young people between the ages of 15 and 35 in 8 countries. 86 of the young people (67%) were young women. Volunteers used Whatsapp messages, phone calls, and recorded interviews to let young people tell their own stories. With a few guiding questions, and using ONA as a platform to structure and analyze the responses, the team has been able to see regional trends and individual stories that must shape humanitarian response to COVID-19 and recovery efforts in way that include young people—especially young women, meet their needs, and value their voices and leadership.

Interviewers had a set of questions from CARE’s Rapid Gender Analysis toolkit, where they asked young people about the biggest impact COVID-19 has in their lives, their biggest need right now, how they are responding to COVID-19, and what are their hopes for the future. Listening to their answers, interviewers categorized the responses based on a pre-set list of options also from the RGA toolkit.

West Africa COVID-19 RGA May 2020

As of mid-April 2020, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa is relatively low. That said, there has only been limited testing in Africa, leading many experts to be concerned that Africa could still experience outbreaks on, or beyond, the scale experienced in other regions. Governments are imposing restrictions on movement to reduce the risk of potential outbreaks, and this is directly impacting the ability of humanitarian actors to provide necessary assistance. At the same time, some governments, notably the governments of Mali and Niger, are also expanding their safety nets to help people respond to COVID-19 and its impacts.
CARE’s Rapid Gender Analysis draws from CARE’s deep experience in the region, and from interviews with 266 people across 12 countries. It points to serious ongoing economic, health, and financial impacts that will be especially severe for women. It also paints a mixed picture of impact on women’s rights. Special concern is paid to encroaching limitations to women’s access to resources, as well as to their representation and participation in formal decision-making; increased incidents of gender-based violence. These worrying
observations are accompanied by hopeful examples of women leading the response to the COVID-19 crisis and finding ways to negotiate equitable relationships with men in their communities, as well as with their husbands/male partners at home. Read More...

ACCESS Evaluation 2017

The ACCES Initiative is a project cofinanced by the European Union, CARE France, the Mairie of Paris, and ten communes in the Ouémé and Borgou departments of Benin. The primary promotor and implementer of the project was CARE International Benin/Togo and the targeted communes were Kalalé, N’Dali, Nikki, Pèrèrè, Tchaourou, Adjarra, Adjohoun, Akpro-Missérété, Bonou, Dangbo. The project lasted five years,with the goal of significantly improving access to infrastructure and services related to water, sanitation, and hygiene for 80 villages, 32 schools, and 10 health centers in ten rural communities of Benin. This was done through the construction and/or rehabilitation of water pumps and the extension of gravity schemes, the installation of incinerators in health centers, and the installation of latrines, trashcans, and urinals in primary schools. Additionally, trainings in management of the new installations were given to local actors and committees to foster self-reliance and local management, and Community Led Total Sanitation was used by facilitators to build demand for sanitation and to decrease or eliminate the practice of open defecation.

Nutrition at the Center Endline Report Benin/Togo

CARE has implemented an innovative, comprehensive five-year program (2013 – 2017) that aims to reduce anemia in women (age 15-49 years) and stunting and anemia in children (age 0-24 months) by integrating: i) Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition and Health (MIYCNH); ii) Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), iii) Food Security (FS), and iv) women’s empowerment. Nutrition at the Center (N@C) were implemented in 4 developing countries (Bangladesh, Benin, Ethiopia and Zambia). It aimed to develop, document and disseminate highly effective and efficient integrated approaches that substantially improve nutritional outcomes for mothers and children. The program’s objectives were: (i) improved nutrition-related behaviors, (ii) improved use of maternal and child health and nutrition services; (iii) increased household adoption of appropriate water and sanitation practices; and (iv) increased availability and equitable access to quality food. An additional P4P program has been experimented at household level in order to supply communities in animal protein source especially for children feeding.
In Benin, N@C has intervened in two communes of the Oueme department (Dangbo and Bonou) and in 32 villages. By engaging with communities, other partners, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Family and the Ministry of Agriculture, N@C will build upon this commitment to improve nutritional status. In 2014, INSAE and CARE International conducted the baseline study, which served as guidelines for actions to be taken up to 2017.
