Stategies, Results and Impacts of Evaluations 2011 - 2013
CARE International has worked in Ecuador since 1962. Our strategic goal is to contribute to the reduction of poverty by 50 percent by 2015. To address the underlying causes of poverty, we have defined a program strategy that consists of three key elements that apply to all programs:
- Increase the capacity of key local and national actors.
- Support integral development approaches developed by excluded groups.
- Influence policies and promote civic and private attitudes and practices at the local, regional and national level that promote equity and inclusion and improved power relations.
To operationalize this strategy, CARE Ecuador will pursue a multi-disciplinary approach to the design and implementation of programs in democracy and governance, education, health, water and sanitation, natural resource management and economic development or any combination of the above.
