Oxfam’s WE-Care initiative aims to make unpaid care work visible as critical to social and economic development, while addressing heavy and unequal care work as a driver of poverty and gender inequality. This 2017 overview describes how WE-Care incorporates a range of stakeholders, ensuring that community groups, governments, development practitioners and the private sector work together to reduce and redistribute unpaid care work.
WE-Care was launched in 2014 in five countries – Colombia, Ethiopia, The Philippines, Uganda and Zimbabwe – and components of the approach are now being implemented across numerous Oxfam programmes covering livelihoods, health rights, women’s leadership and youth empowerment.
