CARE is an international development organization fighting global poverty with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring sustainable changes to their communities. CARE aims to tackle the underlying causes of poverty and social injustice and to bring lasting change to the lives of poor and vulnerable people. Founded in 1945, today CARE works in over 100 countries around the globe. CARE has been working with Cambodians since 1973, with an office in Phnom Penh since 1991.
Today, CARE focuses on empowering particularly marginalized and vulnerable women in Cambodia, including urban women who are marginalized by occupation, rural women who are denied multiple rights, and women and girls from ethnic minorities.
The overall purpose of the Strengthening the Voice of Women Garment Workers (SVW) project aims to enhance the implementation of the rights of women workers in the garment industry laid down in ILO conventions.
Project approach is to strengthening female leadership and connecting women leaders to an established platform is the heart of the proposed action. Strengthening women`s voice and awareness raising of key stakeholders towards gender specific concerns are key elements in CARE´s work and this project. CARE will apply its Gender Equality Framework throughout the Action. The leadership training (outcome 1) will increase knowledge and self-confidence (build agency) of female leaders and encourages them to get into dialogue with factory management to advocate for their rights (outcome 2) (change relations). Learning sessions with male representatives from workers’ organisations (outcome 3) will also challenge the root causes of patriarchal social norms (change relations). This together with open dialogue with industry and governmental institutions advocating for their rights and to implement respective policies to result in changing social norms and laws in the long run (transform structures) (outcome 3).
