CARE Ghana program overview

Program overview

CARE began operations in Ghana in 1994 by working to educate mining areas about sexual health and the prevention of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Today, CARE Ghana focuses on a participatory approach, working in partnership with local and civil society organisations, the government and the private sector. This enables CARE to support the priorities of local populations, while bringing in resources and partnerships to spur innovation and durable solutions. Our goal is to impact the lives of the rural and vulnerable poor—women in particular—through implementing programs in the following areas: Food Security & Nutrition, Livelihood Strategies & Poverty Reduction, Women's Empowerment & Gender Equity, Water & Sanitation, Health and Education.
