Terms of References (TORs) Photographer (External Collaborator) - Women Empowerment in the context of Care (WE CARE) Project


There is a growing need for care globally. However, proper recognition of the contribution of care providers still lags behind. Progress in addressing the structural gender challenges that keep the responsibility for care within households on women remains slow.
In that context, Lebanon is no exception, and there are other layers of complexity that expose care workers in the country to serious vulnerabilities, affecting home-based care workers, nationals as well as migrants, especially as they operate outside of the regulation or protection of the state.
WE CARE structures a response to care work needs in Lebanon and paves the way to professionalize the sector through greater formalization and regulation of care services, in line with decent work principles, and by exploring cooperatives and social enterprises as entry points.
The Project also addresses the unequal distribution of care responsibilities in the family on women, and propose discussions and solutions to change social norms and policies.
