Standing Up for Girls: Girls from Arab States Share the Stories of Their Lives

Protecting girls and supporting fulfilment of their rights and potential lies at the heart of the mandate of the United Nations Population Fund’s Arab States Regional Office (UNFPA-ASRO) and CARE’s regional office for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Both UNFPA and CARE regional offices have embarked on this report with the aim of identifying, documenting and disseminating the impact of programmes that have targeted adolescent girls and that have successfully resulted in delaying child marriage, preventing teenage pregnancies and combating FGM in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), Iraq, and Sudan. More specifically, the report zooms in on the daily lives of girls that have been positively impacted by approaches and practices in reducing GBV and in improving their access to SRH awareness and the accompanying services they need. The report captures the stories told by girls themselves, by their mothers, by community leaders and by aid workers on the risks and unmet needs in refugee and host communities and on how holistic, inclusive and evidence-based programming has mitigated the risks and met these needs.

Promoting inclusive governance and gender equality in Papua New Guinea

CARE’s focus on improved governance and gender equality in Papua New Guinea is transforming women’s lives and their communities. CARE believes that one of the most effective ways for remote communities to thrive is to ensure governance systems function well at a local level and include the voices of all members of a community, particularly women. Our experience has shown that it is a slow but worthwhile process to support inclusive governance and gender equality within households, communities, and all levels of government in Papua New Guinea.

Working for impact in Papua New Guinea: CARE International’s portfolio review

This review focuses on CARE International’s program portfolio in Papua New Guinea (PNG) over the past five years (2013-2018). CARE’s goal in PNG is to achieve significant, positive and lasting impact on poverty and social injustice in remote, marginalised rural areas through the empowerment of women and their communities and through effective partnerships. CARE has worked in PNG since 1989 and now has offices in Goroka in Eastern Highlands Province, Mt Hagen in Western Highlands Province, Buka in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville (ARB) and an office in Port Moresby.

Over the past five years, CARE’s program in PNG has worked in multiple areas: sexual, reproductive and maternal health, community health promotion, awareness and behaviour change; inclusive governance; women’s economic empowerment; climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction; and emergency response. These programs have been implemented in PNG’s particularly challenging operating environment.

Two underlying elements in CARE’s programs in PNG have been an emphasis on promoting gender equality and supporting inclusive governance. This review thus focused closely on CARE’s gender and governance approaches: what impacts were seen, what lessons learned, and what promising approaches are emerging to inform better programming by CARE and other players.

Evaluation d’impact Genre de la réponse de CARE à la crise du Bassin du Lac Tchad au Cameroun, Niger et Tchad

La crise du BLT, née du conflit armé au Nord Nigéria qui s’est étendu au Cameroun, Niger et Tchad a créé une crise humanitaire qui a entrainé le déplacement de 4.025.486 personnes au niveau de ces quatre pays (OIM DTM, Avril 2018). Cette crise révèle une dimension protection sans précèdent avec notamment des violences multiformes à l’encontre des femmes et de filles (kidnapping, violences et abus sexuelles, transformées en kamikaze), des violences physiques à l’encontre des hommes et jeunes garçons (décapités ou enrôlés de force dans les combats) ; la dislocation des milliers de familles a laissé aux femmes et aux enfants la responsabilité de se prendre en charge leurs familles.

CARE répond à la crise du bassin du Lac Tchad (BLT) depuis 2014 au Niger et 2015 au Tchad et au Cameroun. Conformément à son focus et engagement sur le genre, CARE a déployé des efforts pour intégrer le genre à toutes les étapes de la mise en œuvre de la réponse. Cet effort est soutenu par plusieurs bailleurs dont le Global Affairs Canada (GAC) qui finance pour la première fois des projets d’urgence sur deux ans consécutifs au Cameroun, au Niger et au Tchad. C’est grâce à ce financement que cette évaluation a été commanditée pour apprécier l’efficacité de l’approche d’intégration du genre utilisée et son impact sur la vie des hommes, des femmes, des filles et des garçons affectés par la crise du BLT et formuler des recommandations d’amélioration.
