Our Work

Forward accountability
Forward accountability
To ensure that we practice what we preach, CARE is committed to become a more transparent and accountable organisation, especially towards its primary stakeholders, i.e. the people whose lives it seeks to improve and in whose name it raises its funds.

The aim is to enable project participants (or intended 'beneficiaries') to genuinely understand and influence the programmes from which they ought to benefit, and in this way hold CARE accountable.

This includes providing access to information, establishing responsive, safe and reliable feedback mechanisms (e.g. hotlines and community oversight committees), promoting participation in decision-making and an organisational environment that nurtures accountability
