Women's Economic Justice Impact Area Strategy - Vision 2030

COVID-19 has exposed and exacerbated the deep inequalities in our societies and economic systems and threatens to roll back decades of progress.

CARE will continue to focus on supporting women to access financial services, participate in dignified work, and thrive as entrepreneurs and small-scale producers. Through a stronger emphasis on economic justice, we are committed to changing the discriminatory social norms and economic structures, laws, policies and practices that marginalize women, rather than seeking the empowerment of women within an economic system that is broken.

Our goal is that by 2030, 50 million women have more equitable access to and control over economic resources and opportunities by 2030.

CARE will work with economically marginalized women who have no or limited access to and control over economic rights, resources and opportunities. Within this, our sub-impact groups include workers, entrepreneurs and small-scale producers, as well as Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLA) members. This includes young women and women living in fragile or conflict-affected contexts (including women who have been displaced).
