Child Early and Forced Marriage: CARE’s Global Experience (2018)

Outlines CARE's approach and experience in preventing Child Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM), and contributing to reaching SDG target 5.3. The report describes CARE's approach, and practical examples of CARE and our partners' work in six areas: Social Norms; Accommodating Complexity in Girls’ Lives; Building Agency and Solidarity; Men and Boys as Change Agents; Bringing Insight to Advocacy; and Addressing CEFM in Emergencies and Humanitarian Crisis. CARE is committed to doing its part in ending CEFM, not only because of the negative effects an early marriage can have on a girl—maternal mortality and morbidity, psychological trauma, forced sex and physical abuse, and reduced earning potential—but also because girls deserve the full experience of personal development, reached potential, and rights fulfilled, according to their own terms.

Applying Theory to Practice: CARE’s Journey Piloting Social Norms Measures for Gender Programming

Beginning in 2014, a small team across CARE came together to develop and pilot new measures for social norms through an iterative learning process across three pilot sites in Sri Lanka and Ethiopia. This report shares experience and learning on translating social norms theory into practical measurement tools for development programming, featuring the use of CARE’s Social Norms Analysis Plot (SNAP), a new framework developed to measure if and how norms are changing; qualitative vignettes; and survey questions. For questions on the SNAP, contact

South Africa

  • Audit of USAID/Southern Africa's Gender-Related HIV/AIDS Activities. Recognizing that gender norms and inequalities drive the HIV/AIDS epidemic, USAID implemented activities in South Africa focusing on gender strategies to reduce women's greater vulnerability to HIV/AIDS, including women's legal protection, addressing male norms, and reducing violence against women. This report evaluates five activities that focus on these gender strategies, including social mobilization (Project Concern), savings and loan (CARE), promoting positive male norms (Johns Hopkins University), and improving access to treatment and justice for survivors of sexual violence (WJEI).

Sri Lanka

  • A Guidance Note on Gender Transformative and Conflict Sensitive Practice. In 2011, CARE Sri Lanka invited various partners together to help in the development of a 5 year Strategic Plan for CARE. In that document, CARE with our partners committed to help “two million marginalized women and youth fully realize their rights and contribute towards their nation's economic, political and social transformation.” To achieve this goal in an environment where Sri Lanka was emerging from a 30 year long war and in a country where gender inequality and power balances were in need of change, it was felt that we would need to strengthen our staff's and partner's understanding of Gender Transformative and Conflict Sensitive practices. Therefore, for greater clarity, and for our programming to make lasting and effective changes in the lives of women and youth this guidance note was developed.
  • Broadening Gender: Why Masculinities Matter. Attitudes, practices and gender-base violence in four districts in Sri Lanka (April, 2013). This report was developed in collaboration with Partners for Prevention (an interagency initiative of UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women and UN Volunteers in Asia and the Pacific) to understand the knowledge, practices and social attitudes towards gender and gender based violence. The survey provides baseline indicators for care programs, as well as a wealth of information on gendered attitudes norms, and practices of women and men that can be applied to enhance GBV prevention, health, youth and empowerment interventions. There are also several fact sheets from this rich data set: Summary of findings, Childhood experiences and impact on men's use of violence, Impact of violence on women's health and attitudes towards gender, Working with youth to reduce violence, private sector engagement to reduce GBV, Unpacking men's health.

Comprehensive Responses to GBV in Low-Resource Settings**- Population Council, June 2010. From 2006-2009, the Population Council undertook a program of technical assistance and research to strengthen the evidence base on gender-based violence (SGBV) programming in sub-Saharan Africa. This document reviews the findings, lessons learned, and promising practices in the provision of comprehensive SGBV services in sub-Saharan Africa. These findings are intended to serve as a resource for programmers and policymakers throughout the region, and contribute to the emerging evidence-base on such program strategies.

Report: Preventing Intimate Partner & Sexual Violence against Women**- World Health Organization, 2010. This document aims to provide sufficient information for policy-makers and planners to develop data-driven and evidence-based programs for preventing intimate partner and sexual violence against women. At present, only one strategy has evidence supporting its effectiveness – and this only relates to intimate partner violence. The strategy in question is the use of school-based programs to prevent violence within dating relationships. Evidence, however, is emerging of the effectiveness of a number of other strategies for preventing intimate partner and sexual violence, including microfinance programs for women combined with gender-equality education; efforts to reduce access to and harmful use of alcohol; and changing social and cultural gender norms.

Synchronizing Gender Strategies: A Cooperative Model for Improving Reproductive Health and Transforming Gender Relations (Oct 2010). This concept paper, written for the Interagency Gender Working Group, takes gender transformation to the next step, to what has been communally termed “gender synchronization.” Gender synchronization means working with men and women, boys and girls, in an intentional and mutually reinforcing way that challenges gender norms, catalyzes the achievement of gender equality, and improves health. This concept paper provides examples of synchronized approaches that have worked first with women and girls, or first with men and boys, and describes interventions that have worked with both sexes from the start. It also provides examples of new and emerging programs that should be watched in the coming years for the knowledge they may contribute to the implementation of gender synchronization.

CARE has developed Guidance for Gender-Based Violence Monitoring and Mitigation within Non-GBV Focused Programming**

This document aims to address the increasing demand for clear guidance on how to practically and ethically monitor and mitigate gender-based violence (GBV) within non-emergency, international development programming, in which GBV is not a specific programmatic component. Specifically, it draws on existing GBV-related guidance, as well as input from a group of experts, to provide recommendations for preventing and/or responding to unintentional risk, threat, or violence against individuals related to programmatic interventions. These recommendations describe ways to take stock of the programmatic environment with regard to GBV in general, as well as targeted suggestions on how to track GBV-related incidents and issues throughout the program cycle.

CARE developed these toolkits to help build staff capacity in issues of gender and sexuality:

The Inner Spaces, Outer Faces Initiative (ISOFI) toolkit is designed for use by staff of international development and health organizations, and is made up of participatory group activities to help program staff to identify, explore, and challenge their own understanding of gender and sexuality in their lives, the lives of project participants and within the organizations in which they work. The toolkit is available online in Englishand French.

This manual describes the experience of CARE staff and partners in using an approach called Social Analysis and Action to identify and address the social, economic and cultural factors that influence reproductive health. The manual is available online in English, French and Spanish.

This guide, developed by CARE Bangladesh, provides a detailed description of cost analysis tools and ways in which these tools can be used for behavior change communication, advocacy, and claiming compensation for domestic violence.

SDVC women's barrier tree activity for focus groups. The Strengthening Dairy Value Chain (SVDC) project and the COVAW project developed this tool to get at issues of domestic violence without asking about directly about it, and instead discussing “barriers”.

CARE International in Vietnam's GBV Dialogue Tool is a behavior change tool used to create discussion and deepen thinking over time around the topics of gender and violence (one exercise/month over 6 months) to be used within existing groups that meet regularly. The tool was designed for our civil society partners who were in the initial stages of discussing violence in communities and/or in small groups (e.g. community development and women’s economic empowerment projects with ethnic minority groups, life-skills training for garment factory workers, PLHIV groups who found violence to be an underlying issue surfacing in their care & support services). In the piloting of the tool with remote ethnic minority women, the test participants found it instrumental to their understanding of the linkages between gender and violence. Attached are both the tool for literate and illiterate participants. The exercises are also easily adaptable to the group you are targeting.
