CARE fights global poverty with an emphasis on empowering women and girls with education, and maternal health and microfinance resources!

At the peak of the #HornofAfrica famine, 80% of refugees arriving at the #Dadaab camps were women and children. Traveling alone to the camps without male company, they often experienced sexual violence on the journey. However, there was little improvement when they arrived - by the summer of 2011, sexual violence in the camps had quadrupled since the beginning of the year.
