Summary

CARE's work in India began on March 6, 1950 when the Indo-CARE Agreement was signed between Government of India (GOI) and CARE. Since then, CARE-India has supported many GOI programmes including the Mid Day Meals (MDM), the Special Nutrition Programme (SNP) and Food For Work (FFW). Since 1985 CARE-India has been providing food to the Government for Supplementary nutrition to the malnourished mothers and children participating in the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) Programme of the Government of India. CARE-India has been implementing programmes in the areas of primary health care and small economic activities since the late 1980s. In 1993 CARE-India undertook an extensive exercise and developed a five-year Long Range Strategic Plan (LRSP) with a goal to increase women's control of their productive and reproductive lives. Through programmes in nutrition and health, reproductive health, girls' education and women's economic empowerment, CARE-India aims to improve the lives of women and their families in line with the Government of India's National Policy for the Empowerment of Women. CARE-India works in partnership with the Government of India, State Governments, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and project participants.

Abstract

Girl's primary education is a new initiative which supports the Government of India in achieving the goals and objectives of education for all. CARE will strive to increase girl's access to education by promoting and supporting formal - equivalent education programmes in collaboration with NGOs and community groups. This programme will have impact both directly and indirectly on the demand and supply factors, which influence, constrain and facilitate girls' education. The immediate causes of low female literacy, which CARE will address in its project initiative, are : 1)Low demand for education 2)Inaccessibility to education 3)Irrelevant and poor quality of education 4)Inability of formal education system to address demand and supply side bottlenecks to education Some of the major activities of the project include community mobilization through awareness and training of the parents, key persons at the household and village level, school teachers and other stakeholders. Other strategies include generation of demand for girls' education and formal equivalent education programme to increase the accessibility and linkages with the formal education system to improve the quality and relevance of education.

Abstract

Through the ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) and health and Family Welfare infrastructure, CARE-India aims to improve women's access to quality reproductive health services and empower them to make informed decisions about their reproductive health, including the number and training of children. CARE-India's Population and Reproductive Health programmes work to increase community access to appropriate reproductive health care services by extended service delivery, improve the quality of reproductive health services through training and create demand for quality services by developing positive community behavior about reproductive health care. CARE ensures that projects are sensitive to local beliefs and can be sustained in the long term. CARE-India's Improving Women's Reproductive Health and Family Spacing project in Sitapur and Shahjahanpur districts of Uttar Pradesh, aims to empower 349,000 rural women of reproductive age to make informed decisions about their reproductive health including the number and timing of children and avail high quality and accessible health services.Improving Women's Health In Urban Slums aims to significantly reduce morbidity and mortality among 28,000 women in 65 of the neediest authorized slums of Allahabad. This will be accomplished by a significant change in the percentage of women identifying their reproductive health problems and obtain medical attenion/treatment, and by seeking a reduction in the number of high risk unwanted pregnancies. The Improved Health Care for Adolescent Girls in the slums of Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh) will offer adolescent health services to 32,000 girls and aims at significant reduction in morbidity and mortality associated with reproductive health. Additional projects, addressing the problem of HIV/AIDS among truck drivers in Madhya Pradesh and prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections among industrial workers in West Bengal, are presently being designed.

Abstract

CARE-India's Small Economic Activity Development (SEAD) programmes are designed to address the lack of access to credit and to management and technical training opportunitities for women engated in income generating activities. The SEAD sector has set itself a goal of enabling sustainable economy security for 1 million women from lo income households by the year 2005. CARE-India chose the Community-Managed Revolving Loan Fund (CMRLF) model because it is founded on the principle of community potential for self-reliance and independence. CARE-India has recently initiated a large scale CREDIT (Credit Rotation for Empowerment through nutritution-building and Training) project covering 9000 women in Bihar. This project is being implemented through NGO partners and aims to increase Women's income and their participation in decisions regarding how their income will be spent. Another project, Konkan Integrated Project in Maharashtra, endeavors to improve village infrastructure through collective community action, in addition to the provision of credit services for women entrepreneurs. A major initiative which is currently in the design state is the CASHE (Credit And Savings for Household Enterprise) project, which targets excess of 150,000 women, 100 NGOs and select key Government staff primarily from Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal. The project has been conceptualized in three tiers - direct implementation of microcredit projects; training and capacity building of NGOs and key Government staff, and lastly networking and advocacy through a national network.

www.careindia.org/er.html

Abstract

CARE-India is committed to respond to disasters requiring assistance above and beyond Indian Government resources to mitigate and alleviate human suffering and loss of support systems such as livestock, property, and infrastructure.A major hurdle in achieving an organised response at times of disaster is the lack of appropriate information at the right time. Most important among such information is a knowledge of affected areas and population, nature and extent of damage, type of assistance required and updates on the areas covered and those still requiring outside support. To cater to these needs, the India Disaster Response Web Page is being launched on the IDNDR day (October 14, 1998) by CARE-India in collaboration with other Government and Non-Government agencies in the field. The objective of this page will be to provide vital information online to various role-players in disaster management operations.
