Africa

In Africa, Caritas’ development partners are focused on building sustainable livelihoods and promoting human rights. We currently support development work in Kenya and Tanzania and have a long-term commitment to the humanitarian crisis in Darfur. We also respond to humanitarian disasters as they occur around the continent.

Maasai women in Tanzania.

Sustainable livelihoods help communities become independent and self-sufficient. Skills and knowledge are used to generate income while keeping responsible stewardship of the environment and resources.

In our human rights work, current projects aim to preserve the human dignity of vulnerable ethnic groups, women and people affected by HIV and AIDS. Work includes protecting and securing ownership to ancestral land, and supporting education, literacy training and healthcare.
