Economically Mobilizing Women and Girls Through the ISARO Project

This evaluation helps understand the successes, challenges, and impact that the ISARO Project has had in Rwanda. Particularly through the context of the continent wide program WEP and POWER, ISARO has been using these models to help build a more sustainable and economically sound future for poor Rwandans in rural areas, particularly women and girls.

The project has aimed to challenge some of the underlying causes of poverty facing women such as poor political participation and the social and cultural factors that create and perpetuate harmful practices and gender inequality. Whilst the government in Rwanda prioritizes women´s representation, gaps remain at community level, to ensure that women are able to competently handle political leadership, and participate effectively in political processes.

For further information, please see the attached full evaluation.

Men Engaged: Rebuilding Relationships

Jeannette is a member of a VSL group from which she takes loans to invest in income generating projects. 

Her and her husband, Joseph, didn't have any land of their own, so they decided to build a house on the land of Jeannette's parents. At first, they were comfortable in their own home. But their relationship deteriorated when neighbors began telling Joseph that Jeannette was cheating on him. Because of this, Joseph and Jeannette began arguing all the time and their relationship was no longer based on caring love.

A Role Model for Vulnerable Women

Marie Rose is from Matyazo Village in Huye District. She has been part of CARE's Vulnerable Women Program since 2008. As a member of a Village Savings and Loans Association (VSLA), she was trained through a CARE project to make cookstoves. 

This Gender Policy defines CARE International's global commitments to support gender equality and the principles expressed in these international agreements. The accompanying implementation guideline sets out mechanisms and minimum common standards for all CARE members and Country Offices. This policy statement therefore strives to make our collective programming efforts more effective, builds on commitments made in the existing Policy Statements and reflects subsequent developments in gender equality policies of development organizations working to end poverty and social injustice. It thereby sets the stage for increased accountability.
