Gloria, age 9, with her lawyer, Marie Elise Gbedo (left) and her mother, Pauline (right). When her parents separated, Gloria was sent to live with her grandmother who starved her and forced he to do all of the household chores. She often was left outside, exposed to the elements for hours on end.

CARE's EMPOWER program returned Gloria to her mother's care and helped nurse her back to health, saving her from malnutrition.

A new father learns to bathe an infant in India as part of a CARE training. CARE found that new fathers desperately wanted to know more about maternal and newborn care, but were too ashamed to ask. So, CARE set up public demonstrations in school yards as part of health fairs - complete with prizes for the most skilled new dads!

The public dimension of the training showed men they didn't have to be ashamed of their role as care givers. Our hope is that this small step will lead to more shared child care responsibilities, more shared decision making and healthier moms and newborns.
