CARE began its work in Cuba in 1995. Based on our more than 15 years of experience in Cuba, we believe that we can contribute to the development of vulnerable areas and offer capacity, support and expertise as the country updates its social and economic models.
CARE implements programs in collaboration with Cuban partners and supports capacity development while generating dialogue and learning.
Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread – but least recognized – human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one out of three women will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This violence is happening to our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters around the world.
This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.
