Storytelling: Tapping the Power of Narrative
Everyone loves a good story. That’s why stories are so effective for engaging an audience and inspiring action. However, translating complex issues and ideas on top of technological challenges can challenge our natural inclinations to tell a compelling story. Andy Goodman will explain why storytelling is the single most powerful communication tool you possess, and he will offer tips for using stories to advance your mission and purpose.
Women’s Economic Empowerment
CARE pioneered the “Village Savings and Loan Association” (VSLA) in 1991 and is the recognized leader in the savings-led approach. In Africa alone, CARE has supported more than five million savings group members, nearly 80 percent of whom are women, across 31 countries. The estimated savings for those five million savings group members is $290,000,000.
Gender Based Violence
Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most pervasive and least recognized human rights abuses in the world. Rooted in historically unequal power between men and women, GBV results in profound social and economic costs.
