This is the only "toy" kids in a home day care in Rwanda have to play with. The parents made it out of trash from the local dump. When this was photographed, the children were scooping sand from the ground with an empty cigarette carton.

Red eyed from insomnia, still covered in the black burqa imposed by armed groups, Awa (right) has a sad story to share. As she is still very distressed, it is Assan (left), her sister, who tells CARE Awa’s story.

“After the January shooting in Diabaly, my sister Awa walked nearly 100 miles from Diabaly to Sibirila with two of her children and eight other unaccompanied children.

Traumatized by the events in Diabaly, she doesn’t talk much now, and she is not her usual self. She is currently receiving medical treatment so that she can better deal with her distress.

Things are tough for us now with having to look after all the children as well.”

This is a poster from a CARE Peru project that brings together teenage girls and boys to talk and relate, share stories and better understand and respect each other. Through the project, teenagers improve their attitudes and behaviors, with the ultimate goal of creating a more responsible masculinity, in particularly addressing social attitudes around gender-based violence. Translation: "From teenagers to equitable men."

On Feb. 15, a CARE delegation met 15-year-old Eliza Sokoroti in Tanzania. Last year, Eliza found out that her father was trying to sell her into child marriage in exchange for 12 cows.

Luckily, Eliza is part of a CARE program that helps marginalized children, especially girls, in pastoralist communities access an education. Upon hearing of the pending marriage, Eliza immediately told her teacher who was able to talk her father out of the marriage.

Today, Eliza is safely in school. She hopes to one day become a nurse so she can care for her elderly grandmother. "I want to see my future first. I want to see my studies end and then marry," she says.
