Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE), Inc. doing business as CARE International in Ghana is seeking talented, motivated and innovative Enumerators for the Women for Change (W4C) Project.
The Women for Change (W4C) Project with funding from Mars Wrigley is being implemented in Ghana by CARE International from October 2020 to September 2025 with the overall objective of “expanding the village savings and loan initiative in Mars’ supplier cocoa communities to strengthen financial literacy, household savings, and income-generating activities for women.
Available evidence suggests when cocoa-farming households gain access to financial skills and tools, women are able to engage in entrepreneurship and collective action, and gender equality is increased in cocoa-growing communities, then cocoa-farming households achieve economic resilience and improved livelihoods, directly contributing to achieving a living income.
