CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in more than 90 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from clean water to access to education; from microfinance to ensuring that everyone has nutritious food; from agriculture and climate change to disaster response. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because they have proven to be the best hope for creating lasting change in the world. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for over 70 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and fight with CARE.
Cash and voucher assistance (CVA) is increasingly becoming the modality of choice for CARE’s programming. In the fiscal year 2020, CARE used CVA in 48 contexts. CARE’s strategic ambition aspires to have all projects with CVA be gender-sensitive based on its organizational definition. CARE is committed to ensuring that projects with CVA are designed with and for women and girls, addressing their needs, challenges, and opportunities.
Gender sensitivity will frame the processes and outcome of the use of the modalities. Additionally, CARE has sought to be a convener on the topic of gender and CVA, getting other actors interested in the topic. To be successful in achieving these goals, CARE seeks to add a new member to its cash and markets team. The post holder will contribute to, manage, organize, and disseminate CARE’s CVA learning and evidence. Additionally, the person in this role will contribute significantly to CARE’s CVA capacity building.
