Our Work

Participation
Participation
At CARE we believe that every citizen has the right to participate in taking decisions that affect his or her life. We support citizens' engagement either in formal decision-making spaces, or when these are not available, help to create these spaces, mobilising actors to exercise their voice and realise their right to be heard.

Actions include: raising awareness about citizens' rights and responsibilities, building the capacities of civil society to articulate their interests, social mobilisation around unrecognised rights and demands, or working with public officials and other power holders to strengthen inclusive decision-making processes that respond to the interest of marginalised groups.
