CARE is supporting civil society engagement, social accountability, and social movements by leveraging the trust of the government and working in equal partnerships with civil society organizations.
CARE works with local partners including local, regional, and national governments, the private sector, and local civil society to ensure an effective and sustainable impact.
In Cambodia, CARE has been working on governance and social accountability within marginalized communities for more than 10 years. The community scorecard is used to enhance the performance, responsiveness, and accountability of local government and service providers, including commune administrations, health centers, and primary schools. This is improving local access to information, transparent budgeting, and citizen-led monitoring with a focus on positive engagement and impact for women, young people, and Indigenous communities.
