One night, at a refugee settlement in Uganda, 26-year-old Joyce (not pictured above) watched in fear as her husband continued to drink and his behaviour became increasingly erratic. Ever since they’d fled the war in South Sudan, her husband’s drinking had gotten worse and sometimes led to violent outbursts. As he became more intoxicated, he started yelling and hitting her. Suddenly, he grabbed a machete and threatened to cut her. Terrified, Joyce grabbed their six children and ran to a neighbour’s tent.
1.1 What is ACCRA?
KAMPALA- (June 12, 2017)- Ahead of the ‘Uganda Solidarity Summit on Refugees’ on June 22-23, CARE International warns of the alarming health and safety risks for refugee women and girls fleeing the continuous fighting and famine in South Sudan. An average of 2,000 refugees are arriving daily into northwestern Uganda.
Juba, September 28, 2016. - CARE is worried about the new spread of fighting and insecurity to the Greater Equatoria region, an area previously largely unaffected by the conflict that has engulfed the country since December 2013. CARE assessments in Imatong State (Eastern Equatoria) show largescale displacement, with many homes burnt and looted during the fighting, and attacks on civilians and NGOs becoming increasingly common.
The 2015 Engaging Men and Boys Learning Initiative explored the experiences of men involved in the struggle for gender equality. How did they first get involved? What sustains men and boys’ engagement in this work? How can men better support women and women’s organizations in the fight for gender equality? And how can organizations like CARE support them?
In June and July (2015) Alies Rijper carried out a qualitative research in Lubero, North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo, to evaluate the effects of the mutual reinforcement approach adopted by the Dutch Consortium for Rehabilitation (DCR) and its local partners in the Pamoja-programme.

Lessons by Partners for Resilience: moving from output to impact
by Juriaan Lahr, Head of International Assistance, Netherlands Red Cross
A group of seven major international aid agencies said they face a shortfall of $89m/£52m just when the South Sudan humanitarian crisis edges closer to the risk of famine. Speaking out on the 3rd anniversary of the country’s independence they warned their aid efforts to help hundreds of thousands of people caught up in the conflict was under threat due to a lack of funds.
In just over 100 days since violence erupted in South Sudan, over 1 million people have fled their homes. 4.9 million people are in desperate need of emergency assistance (food, access to clean water and sanitation). Many refugees are crossing into Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan. 3.7 million people are at high risk of a severe food crisis. On top of this, the rainy season begins mid-April, entailing high risks of flooding.
CARE warns that thousands are still at risk despite recent military victory over one of the main armed groups in the east of the country
DRC, Uganda (5 November, 2013): CARE calls for the continued protection of civilians in DRC, and warns that the UN-supported Congolese army’s declared victory today over one of the main armed groups in the east of the country does not mean an end to a ruthless conflict that has been raging on for decades, with thousands still being at risk. Only last week’s violence forced an estimate of 10,000 people to flee to neighbouring Uganda.

- Population and General
There are approximately 20 million pastoralists across Sub-Saharan Africa. Pastoralists - people who depend primarily on livestock or livestock products for income and food- typically graze their animals on communally managed or open-access pastures, and move with them seasonally. Adding in agro-pastoralists-who derive 50 per cent of their income from non-livestock resources-the numbers reaches over 30 million in the Greater Horn of Africa (CAADP Policy Brief No.6, March 2012).
CARE lance un appel à la communauté internationale pour assurer la protection des femmes et des filles dans l’Est de la RDC alors que la zone nord Kivu entame son 4ème mois de conflit.
La récente montée en puissance des violences affecte plus de 320 000 personnes dont 200 000 personnes déplacées en RDC ou dans les pays voisins, le Rwanda et l’Ouganda. Dans ce contexte, les femmes et les filles sont particulièrement vulnérables aux violences sexuelles.
CARE calls for total protection of women and girls
Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo – August 7, 2012. CARE, one of the largest aid organizations worldwide, calls for total protection of women and girls in eastern DR Congo as the conflict in North Kivu enters its fourth month. The recent escalation of violence affects over 320,000 people, including over 200,000 who are displaced in DR Congo or neighboring Rwanda or Uganda. Women and girls are particularly vulnerable to sexual and gender-based violence in this context.
One of the long-standing challenges to successful peacebuilding has been the difficulty of measuring results and generating evidence that can help identify what types of interventions work best. This guide builds on work undertaken by CARE International and International Alert in three countries to pilot theory based evaluation tools to help evaluate the impact of the peacebuilding projects. 19 projects and 38 theories of change were tested, with the resulting tools, tips and processes captured here.
Due to the intensified fighting witnessed since April between the national army of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and various armed groups, thousands of Congolese have recently had to flee their homes in search of security. While nearly two million people were already displaced within the DRC, a new wave of violence in North Kivu province has led to thousands of additional displacements.
