CARE is an international development and humanitarian aid organization fighting global poverty, with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring lasting change to their communities. As a non-religious and non-political organization, CARE works with communities to help overcome poverty by supporting development efforts and providing emergency assistance. We believe supporting women and girls is one of the most effective ways to create sustainable outcomes in poor communities.

Since February 2016, CITL started to implement the HAFORSA project which is funded by the Government of Japan. This project aims at improving agricultural livelihood opportunities towards poverty reduction, especially for women who often do not have the opportunities to demonstrate their ability to contribute to sustainable livelihood and income generation. To attain this objective, the project intends to strengthen (i) capacity of farmers in Atsabe to have diversified and sustainable livelihoods in agriculture; and (ii) capacity of target female farmers to participate in livelihood activities. This project will target 22 Aldeias in all sucos of Atsabe.
