LÍNEA DE BASE DEL PROYECTO “ALMA LLANERA”

El presente documento constituye el Informe Final del “Estudio de Línea de Base del Proyecto Alma Llanera” desarrollado por el equipo de consultores, entre los meses de enero y febrero del año 2020, de acuerdo a los términos de referencia de CARE. El levantamiento de la línea de base tiene como propósito brindar el estado de situación de los indicadores del Marco Lógico (ML), así como servir de instrumento para la medición posterior de los resultados y el impacto del proyecto.

La Línea de Base se elaboró en función a los tres ejes establecidos en el proyecto (acceso a la protección, servicios de salud mental y medios de vida). Entre los principales resultados encontrados luego del análisis de la información recogida, resaltan los siguientes:

a) Respecto del acceso a la protección, se evidencia la preocupación que perciben las personas migrantes y refugiadas venezolanas respecto de las condiciones de seguridad en el entorno donde viven y laboran.
b) Con relación al acceso a los servicios de salud mental, se ha encontrado que en el proceso de migración hacia Perú y el consecuente cambio y choque de expectativas, se generaron situaciones de estrés y depresión que se manifestaron de forma más severa durante la primera fase de adaptación a la comunidad de acogida.
c) El análisis sobre los medios de vida nos muestra, que las mujeres con empleo (formal o informal) y con emprendimientos (autoempleos), representan el 67.5% de la población total de mujeres encuestadas. Read More...

Evaluación final del proyecto “Escalando el desarrollo empresarial para el empoderamiento de mujeres”

Llevar el desarrollo empresarial para el empoderamiento de las mujeres a escala es el desafío principal de la segunda fase de intervención en el Perú en el marco de una asociación global entre la Fundación H&M y CARE Holanda. Es así que, uno de los objetivos de esta segunda fase es tener una mejor comprensión del potencial y las necesidades específicas y diversas de la iniciativa empresarial liderada por mujeres en grupos o asociaciones.

Para medir el logro de esta segunda fase, CARE Perú llevó a cabo un proceso de generación de información, a través de un servicio de consultoría, que sirviera de Línea de Base del proyecto. El recojo de información se llevó a cabo entre los meses de febrero y marzo 2017, a través de la aplicación de encuestas a beneficiarias del proyecto en las regiones de Piura, Junín y Huancavelica.

Con los resultados obtenidos de la Línea de Base 2017, CARE Perú procedió a generar la información cuantitativa de la Línea Final del proyecto, cuyo trabajo de campo de aplicación de encuestas se desarrolló en el mes de noviembre 2019 (2 años y 8 meses después de la Línea de Base), a través del presente servicio de consultoría. El objetivo central de la evaluación es comparar los resultados de ambos procesos de recojo de información, a fin de verificar si han ocurrido mejoras en indicadores líderes del proyecto a favor de las beneficiarias. A ello se suma una comparación de resultados contra un grupo de emprendedoras no beneficiarias, cuya información también fue recogida en el trabajo de campo de noviembre 2019. El trabajo se complementó con un análisis cualitativo basado en el recojo de información a través de entrevistas en profundidad a actores claves del proyecto. Read More...

Executive summary Palestine West Bank/Gaza Rapid Gender Assessment Early Gender Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic

This is the executive summary. For the full report, check here: http://www.careevaluations.org/evaluation/palestine-west-bank-gaza-rapid-gender-assessment-early-gender-impacts-of-the-covid-19-pandemic-full-report/

Among those most impacted by COVID19 are women and girls. Across every sphere, from health to the economy, security to social protection, the impacts of COVID-19 are exacerbated for women and girls simply by virtue of their sex. All of these impacts are further amplified in contexts of fragility, conflict, refuge, displacement and emergencies where social cohesion is already undermined and institutional capacity and services are limited.

CARE Palestine West Bank/ Gaza has carried out a Rapid Gender Assessment in order to highlight for policymakers the importance of addressing the gender impacts of this pandemic and social prejudices and gender norms that discriminate against women in the public and private spheres.
This report is intended for policymakers, the Palestinian Authority, civil society organizations—local and international—community members, donors, and the international community at large. It is organized around broad themes and areas of focus of particular importance to those whose programming advances gender equality and reduces gender inequalities. It seeks to deepen the current gender analysis available by encompassing learning from global gender data available for the COVID-19 public health emergency.Among those most impacted by COVID19 are women and girls.

CARE Rapid Gender Analysis for COVID 19 East, Central and Southern Africa

The impacts – direct and indirect – of public health emergencies fall disproportionally on the most vulnerable and marginalized groups in society. Interconnected social, economic, and political factors pose complex challenges for the ECSA region’s ability to respond to COVID-19. The region already faces significant health challenges that would exacerbate the severity of COVID-19, such as high levels of malnutrition, malaria, anemia, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis. Access to healthcare in the region is the lowest in the world, thus there is limited capacity to absorb the pandemic1. Gender-based inequality is extensive in the region. Women are at a higher risk for exposure to infection due to the fact that they are often the primary caregivers in the family and constitute 70% of frontline healthcare responders.2 Most women already face limited access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services, and the region struggles with high levels of maternal mortality. For example, mother mortality rates recorded in South Sudan were 1150 per 100 000 live births3. COVID-19 will only increase women’s safety risks and care burdens as health services become stretched and resources shift to COVID-19 responses.
Women and girls are at increased risk of violence during the COVID-19 period. Current rates of violence against women and girls combined with the prevalence of harmful traditional practices leads to increased vulnerability. Income loss and limited mobility, compounded with existing gender role expectations, may contribute to increases in intimate partner violence and other forms of gender-based violence. Read More...
