6.1 CARE’s programming framework

CARE’s organisational commitment to participation can be found in both the mission statement and the Programme Principles. The last part of the mission statement speaks of the organisational commitment to participation in stating that CARE’s pursuit of our mission will be ‘guided by the aspirations of local communities‘.

CARE’s Programme Principle Two is to work in partnership with others. This commitment to partnership must extend to working together with women and men affected by disasters, as well as local groups such as NGOs and more informal community-based organisations in humanitarian efforts.
