After World War II, CARE mobilized to send much-needed food rations, known as "CARE Packages," to Polish people and refugees devastated by war and occupation. As the war in Ukraine escalated, CARE returned to Poland to assist Ukrainian refugees. The Polish office is also active in Slovakia and Hungary and runs operations in Ukraine. Currently, CARE International in Poland aims to ensure that refugees in Poland have access to gender, education, and basic needs assistance. Working with local partners, CARE International in Poland has reached 400,000 Ukrainian refugees in the region.

Building Capital in Crisis: CARE’s VSLA in Emergencies increase savings and solidarity

August 14, 2023

Since 2017, CARE has piloted and refined our VSLA in Emergencies model to reach people in need of humanitarian assistance and provide an approach that can reduce long term vulnerability while being more sustainable. In this second report on the VSLA in Emergencies (VSLAiE) pilot research, we provide insights from three pilots in Yemen, Syria, and Jordan. This includes the end of pilot findings from Syria and Jordan as well as the results from our Yemen sustainability study. As a result of funding from IDEAL Small Grants Program, CARE has been able to return to communities in Yemen, one year after the end of the first cycle and observe the sustainability of the gains from the pilot project.

Integrating Local Knowledge in Humanitarian and Development Programming: Perspectives of Global Women Leaders

August 9, 2023

This report examines local knowledge integration in the context of global development and humanitarian aid work. It builds upon a recently published report by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) called Integrating Local Knowledge in Development Programming. That report sought to “share knowledge of how development donors and implementing organizations leverage local knowledge to inform programming. This study aims to extend the original methods to better understand grassroots actors’ own interpretations of local knowledge and its integration into programming in their communities. It examines the perspectives of 29 grassroots leaders from women-led organizations around the world, looking deeply at the ways in which they conceptualize local knowledge and local knowledge stakeholders, their approaches to designing their own projects based on local knowledge, and their experiences sharing knowledge with international actors and donors. This builds the broader evidence base on integrating local knowledge to incorporate the perspectives of grassroots actors into the same conversation as the original study.
