EduCare in Action

Mainstreaming Gender and Human Rights-Based Approaches

EduCare’s approach is anchored in human and children’s rights principles. The program specifically targets populations that are most vulnerable to marginalization, discrimination, exclusion and abuse or exploitation. Because the majority of the world’s poor are women—and women comprise the bulk of caregivers who participate in EduCare—the program integrates a gender inclusive approach to reducing inequality and enabling women’s access to economic opportunities. 

Our Vision for the Future of EduCare

EduCare addresses numerous, critical global issues and is specifically linked to 9 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the United Nations. The program’s outcomes speak for themselves—EduCare works. 

Partnership is vital to our work. Strategic investments in EduCare empower thousands of vulnerable children and families every day. Together, we can grow EduCare’s impact in regions beyond East Africa. The program’s holistic approach can be adapted to specifically address numerous key global issues and geographic focus areas.
