CARE runs various women’s empowerment projects. Support is offered in areas such as loans and economic development, improving livelihoods for women, the right to property, providing support to survivors of sexual violence, and ending gender-based violence. We involve men and boys as partners for change who can help transform gender relations and address the rights of women.
Abatangamuco is a men’s group in Burundi working with CARE to help end deep-rooted gender discrimination. Abatangamuco works with men in the community to help them to realise the potential of women and create equality in their marital relationships, ultimately benefiting individuals, families and whole communities.
