This Sunday it is International Women’s Day and the theme this year is Making It Happen.

ClimateCare partners, from businesses to NGOs and governments are already doing just that – helping to empower women across the globe through integrated Climate+Care programmes that improve lives and tackle climate change.

Many ClimateCare partners support safe water projects, meaning women and girls no longer need to spend hours every day, collecting firewood to boil water and make it safe to drink.

While the provision of treadle pumps can increase crop yields helping to create greater prosperity which in turn helps to pay for children’s food, education and health care.

Modern, efficient stoves cut indoor air pollution meaning women and girls are less likely to suffer from respiratory disease. They also cook food more quickly and require less fuel and   saving money that can be put to better use.
