CARE began operations in Mali in 1975.
OurÂ programmes focus on strengthening community-based organisations and local government, to ensure communities have a say in the decisions affecting their lives.
In Mali, we work to improve the situation for the most vulnerable members of society, such as poor women and children.
We are improving womenâ€™s access to credit and income-generating activities, so that they can earn and save money and achieve greater financial stability.
We are also working to prevent female circumcision by raising awareness of the health risks involved.
Combating Child Labour
We also work on preventing trafficking in children and exploitative child labour by improving education services and by increasing overall school enrolment.
CARE also raises awareness about child trafficking among children and providesÂ economic opportunities for the families of at-risk children.
