The Challenge

In Vanuatu, three quarters of the population live in rural areas and on remote islands - many lack access to clean water, education and essential healthcare.

Women and girls are most disadvantaged by poverty as cultural norms and high rates of violence limit their opportunity to attend school, earn an income or share in community decision-making.

CARE Australia’s Empowering Women in Vanuatu project builds women’s confidence, knowledge and skills to improve their livelihoods, while supporting women to step into leadership positions and participate meaningfully in decision-making at all levels in their community.

This project also connects women with the Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce to help them develop an entrepreneurial spirit, grow their small business and increase their income.
