CARE Bangladesh Approach to Partnership- Working together to Achieve Greater Impact

Working with partners is one of the programming principles that CARE intends to adopt in order to ensure we maximize the impact of our programs. We forge long-term partnerships with actors who offer complementary approaches and are able to effectively contribute to our programs addressing the underlying causes of poverty. Our approach to partnership is to build shared and deeper understanding on issues that affect people's wellbeing and focuses on capacity development of communities and local organizations.

In the context of our long-term programs, CARE will continue to work with implementing and technical partners. In addition, CARE seeks to establish relationships that are different than the typical partnerships set up in projects. CARE and our partners are committed to change that we collectively define beyond the usual project lifecycle.

Program approach means achieving impact at broad scale and working at multiple levels with different stakeholders, including government institutions, to address policy issues. CARE will continue to increase its efforts to build networks and alliances locally, nationally and internationally for influence around relevant issues. CARE Bangladesh continues to partner with local NGOs, government, the private sector and technical service providers to help spread the benefits of our development interventions more broadly.

Our partnerships focus on developing mutually-beneficial relationships which work towards achieving a common goal and vision. A commitment towards this process is to develop an operating model that enables us to better serve the interests of our impact groups over the longer-term. Taking into consideration CARE's core values (respect, integrity, commitment to services, excellence and diversity) and to ensure accountability to the people we serve, we take joint decisions, divide tasks and responsibility with partners based on our comparative advantages and share potential risks equally. We engage in learning and reflection with partners to capitalize on shared understanding for capacity building and program development.

CARE Bangladesh works with private sector partners to promote Inclusive Business where the life and livelihoods of the poor and marginalized are improved by creating income and employment, access to products and services and access to the market. This means that the extreme poor can benefit from mainstream economic growth and development. Our private sector team also find business opportunities for investment in our work through creating innovative partnerships for development.
