Since 2016, with funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, CARE International has been partnering with the Hague Academy for Local Governance to carry-out Every Voice Counts (EVC), a 5-year programme in Afghanistan, Burundi, Pakistan, Rwanda, Somalia and Sudan. The programme’s objectives are:
- Increased and meaningful participation of women and girls in decision making processes in Kabul, Khost, Parwan and Balkh provinces;
- Inclusive spaces for dialogue and negotiation and create/expand it to local and national level;
- Increased attention of women and girls’ rights and political participation in the national
debate among Afghan public and authorities;
- Improved availability, accessibility and quality of girls’ education and health services.
The goal of the gender analysis consultancy was to provide baseline data on gender dynamics, and technical advice and recommendations on women’s economic and political empowerment for the CARE & HiH Afghanistan partnership programmes in the target regions.
