CARE has been implementing projects in the areas of health and HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, water and sanitation, social protection, governance, education, gender equality, economic empowerment and environmental conservation among others. To achieve sustainability of its interventions and ensure true ownership in communities of the processes supported by our work, CARE Zambia works with existing community structures and engages participating communities to increase their capacities to be responsive to their own developmental challenges.
CARE Zambia through Women Empowerment Business Development (WEBD) project and with funding from the H&M Conscious Foundation in the Netherlands has been implementing a Social Enterprise initiative in the peri-urban settlements of Lusaka (Chazanga, Chipata, Kanyama, George and Ng’ombe) and three Lusaka rural districts of Chongwe, Rufunsa and Luangwa. The social enterprise has been building a network of 150 women business entrepreneurs who have been promoting and marketing a wide range of health, nutrition and other selected consumer goods reaching above 30,000 households (160,000 people) in the targeted areas.
The project intends to hire a consultant to conduct the final evaluation that will compare market research results to outcomes and impact in related communities.
