The Vulnerable Women Program

CARE Rwanda's Vulnerable Women Program (VW) focuses on long term change in the human condition in which vulnerable women live, their social position, and the enabling environment that surrounds them. The VW Program empowers women, promotes their agency and advocates for broader social change to ensure women can claim their rights. CARE and its partners engage women, men, and communities in a program of behaviour change to transform gender-power dynamics, in order to prevent and respond to gender-based violence and improve gender equality. This approach results in a more equitable division of reproductive work and a reported reduction in family conflict and gender-based violence.
