Our Work

Social Accountability
CARE has extensive experience working at the local level to ensure that the most vulnerable and marginalised are able to hold public authorities and private corporations to account for how they make decisions, and how they allocate and manage public or private funds.

To this end, CARE supports the implementation of a variety of tools and approaches, including budget monitoring, public hearings, social audits, and community score cards to improve local governance processes and service delivery in different sectors such as health, education and food security.
