CARE’s Women’s Economic Empowerment Strategy

Women’s economic empowerment is one of four priority areas for CARE’s work, as set out in the CARE 2020 Program Strategy. This strategy on women’s economic empowerment sets out what CARE will do to meet our aim of 30 million women having greater access to and control over economic resources by 2020.

The strategy document outlines the background and rationale for our work on Women’s economic empowerment and what we will do in the areas of financial inclusion, women and value chains, dignified work, entrepreneurship, and creating resilient markets in fragile and humanitarian contexts.
