CARE on Tour: Empowering Women & Girls in Benin

Benin is a stable, peaceful country that has maintained more than two decades of democratic governance. However, Benin ranks 165 out of 187 countries on the Human Development Index and more than a third of the population lives in poverty, with nearly half of all Beninese children under five years old being stunted due to malnutrition.[1] Despite its challenges, Benin is making strides to combat poverty and promote sustainable development through organizations like CARE.

You’re invited to a special event on Friday, September 23rd to learn about how CARE is working in Benin to empower women and girls through programs focused on education, gender-based violence, and microfinance interventions. Our program will feature Bonaventure Nzavugambonyimana, Programs Director, CARE Benin/Togo and Andrea Fuentes, CARE Action Network Fellow from Durham, North Carolina to share about CARE’s field work in Benin and how local advocates are organizing in North Carolina to promote investments in global health and development.

Reception: 6:30-7:00pm

Program: 7:00-8:00pm

Location: At the home of John and Ginger Sall in Cary, North Carolina.  Please RSVP to put your name on the guest list and for directions to the location.
