About the project: ActionAid International’s annual capacity building meet in Africa in 2013 required developing case studies on building economic alternatives for women through sustainability. Through this study, emphasis was laid on the ‘care’ economy and how that can be improved by means of certain affirmative actions via private, state or cooperative channels. The core element of the study was identifying global yet diverse case studies to be adapted within the framework of ActionAid’s module.
