CARE Tanzanian’s history
CARE International has been present in Tanzania since April 1994 when CARE International established a temporary presence in response to the crisis in Ngara, Kagera region. Since then, CARE Tanzania has had three long term strategic plans developed focusing on the following objectives:
- Tackling causes of poverty and social injustice
- Focusing on rural women’s and girls’
- Focusing on rural women empowerment through
climate justice (2014-2020)
We believe that through economic empowerment, women in Tanzania will unlock all milestones needed to achieve gender equality. CARE Tanzania believes that through promoting women’s rights, financial inclusion, entrepreneurship and business development services then women in Tanzania will achieve economic liberation contributing positively to different levels of the economy.
By 2028, CARE and our partners will globally support 200 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice.
CARE aims to globally change lives across multiple impact areas:
GENDER EQUALITY: 50 million people of all genders experience greater gender equality (particularly eliminating GBV, and increasing women and girls’ voice, leadership and education).
HUMANITARIAN ACTION: CARE provides quality, gender-focused and localized humanitarian assistance to 10% of those affected in major crises, reaching at least 50 million people by 2028.
RIGHT TO FOOD, WATER, AND NUTRITION: 75 million people, the majority of them women and girls, increase their fulfilment of their right to adequate food, water and nutrition.
WOMEN’S ECONOMIC JUSTICE: 50 million have more equitable access to and control over economic resources and opportunities.
RIGHT TO HEALTH: 50 million people increase the fulfilment of their right to health, and 30 million women their right to sexual and reproductive health.
CLIMATE JUSTICE: 25 million poor and marginalized people, particularly women and girls, have strengthened their resilience and adaptive capacities to the effects of climate change and are contributing to the energy transition.
