INTRODUCTION INĂ‰S TEMPLE
BOARD OF DIRECTORS CHAIRPERSON
For more than 70 years of work at global level, CARE has always shown its integrity, commitment and dedication to improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable people. CARE was founded in 1945, originally intended to provide humanitarian assistance to the victims of World War II. Since then CARE has evolved into one of the most important international NGOs in the fight against poverty and for emergency relief. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries, implementing 1,033 projects that benefited more than 80 million people.
I am pleased to present CARE Peru's 2016 Annual Report. This document gathers the main actions and achievements of our organization, a global leader within a movement dedicated to eradicating poverty, through our different programs. It also includes the testimonies of people whose lives have changed as a result of our interventions. During 2016, our work and commitment in the fight against poverty have focused on 6 programs: (i) Water and Sanitation (ii) Education, (iii) Food Security, Nutrition and Health, (iv) Economic Development, Climate Change and (vi) Risk Management. We have directly benefited more than 416,000 people in poor and marginalized communities in Peru, and indirectly benefited more than 4.8 million people through the strengthening of our partners involved in the replication and scaling up of validated social development interventions and the promotion of public policies.
CARE has been in Peru formore than 46 years. CARE's first intervention was to support the reconstruction processes after the Ancash earthquake. Since then, we have actively worked with the poorest communities. Since 2011, CARE Peru has been an autonomous national NGO - one of the largest in the country - and remains affiliated with CARE International. This enables us to access the organization's global experience and have a greater impact on our local actions. However, it also presents new challenges, since we must seek local and international funding for our projects.
At CARE, we prioritize our interventions on women and girls because we know that we cannot overcome poverty unless all people have equal rights and opportunities. Our experience at home and internationally shows that the best way to eradicate poverty is through the education and empowerment of girls and women. Focusing on them is strategic to achieve the development of the country.
In 2016, we began tackling the issue of school dropout rates through our flagship project "Girls with Opportunities." Currently, 51% of adolescent women in rural Peru do not complete high school. That is why at CARE, we are focused on having more impoverished girls finish school, on breaking the circle of poverty, and on accessing the opportunities offered by education.
We have more than 46 years of continuous work in the country and we are proud of the results we have obtained. The impact achieved is possible thanks to the generous efforts of our private and institutional donors, partners, companies and individual donors.
To continue our impact and appeal to the spirit of solidarity in our fellow citizens, I ask you to trust CARE Peru and support our projects. Together we can give opportunities to more Peruvian men and women to escape poverty and have a decent life every day. Also, I call for more companies in the country to engage with us and to see in us a key ally in their corporate social responsibility projects.
In this report we want to share our achievements during 2016 with you. It responds to an exercise of transparency and accountability towards donors, partners, the Government and the participants in our projects. I hope that this will inspire them to stand in solidarity with our cause and to renew their commitment in the fight against poverty and inequality in Peru.
I want to thank our partners, the organizations and people who support us, and especially the CARE Peru team for their dedication and commitment. I would also like to thank all the members of the Board of Directors, which I chair, who actively and unselfishly support us to make our country fairer and more inclusive.

HOW DO WE WORK IN CARE PERU? We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security. To this end, we develop programs and projects that are aligned with the UN's Sustainable Development Objectives (SDOs) and help contribute to positive changes in society, such as reducing chronic child malnutrition, raising educational quality and access to health services, safe water and sanitation. We focus on gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls as agents of change. In this way, we support the government and other institutions to replicate successful strategies validated by our team.

2016 HIGHLIGHTS WATER AND SANITATION
Three dispersed rural communities on the coast, highlands and jungle, located in Piura, Ancash and Ucayali respectively, are taken as references for implementing new water and sanitation models for villages of less than 200 inhabitants in the most remote localities of Peru.
The first year of our flagship project, "Girls with Opportunities", is successfully implemented. It begins with 8,543 girls and boys from 5 Educational Institutions (IIEE) in HuaytarĂĄ-Huancavelica and 14 Educational Institutions from Chincha-Ica, whose objective is to have 100,000 girls complete high school with quality education by 2021, thus breaking the circle of poverty.
HEALTH, FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION
During the 2016 election campaign, advocacy actions were carried out with the eight presidential candidates to have them sign a commitment to reduce chronic child malnutrition to less than 10%, and anemia to less than 20% during their government.
We implemented the "Mechanism of Remuneration for Water Ecosystem Services" in the Shullcas watershed, a tool that facilitates generation, transfer or investment of economic resources through an agreement between contributors (suppliers) and rewarders (consumers) aimed at conservation, and sustainable use of ecosystem service sources.
EMERGENCIES AND RISK MANAGEMENT
We lead the consortium made up by eight NGOs to prepare for the El NiĂąo Southern Oscillation (ENSO) in the most exposed and vulnerable communities in the regions of La Libertad, Lambayeque, Piura and Tumbes, especially in the areas of roofing, water, sanitation and hygiene, and protection.

WATER AND SANITATION
Almost 7 million Peruvians do not have potable water services and 9.7 million do not have sanitation services. (National Plan of Investments on Water and Sanitation, 2015)
For more than 30 years, we have been working on the right of all Peruvians to have adequate water and sanitation services. To do this, we provide technical assistance and develop innovative solutions in water and sanitation, overcoming the difficulties of rural, Andean and Amazonian contexts.
Our challenge is to reach scattered rural populations and jointly build an adequate model of water and sanitation service supply. Water and sanitation in scattered rural communities
Three Swiss institutions (Eawag, Seecon, Swiss TPH) and four Peruvian institutions (CARE, GEA Group, IPES and UNALM) make up the consortium responsible for project implementation.
The communities of Nuevo Cucungarรก (Piura), Romatambo (Ancash) and Atahualpa de Tabacoa (Ucayali) are representative of the scattered rural communities of coast, highlands and jungle where water and sanitation projects are carried out for villages of less than 200 inhabitants. We have a profile, portfolio and intervention strategy designed to implement these models and have trained three local promoters who accompany the processes of health education and local management.
Water and sanitation for scattered communities (SABA plus phase 2) The SABA plus phase 2 project, developed in 14 regions of the country, will be completed in 2017. In preparation of the project closure, SABA has systematized its tools, an outcome of 21 years of intervention in the rural area of Peru, and will transfer this knowledge in an orderly and effective way to the National Rural Sanitation Program (PNSR).
The lessons and good practices in this experience will be put into to a strategy focused on closing the water and sanitation gaps in the country. My Solar Water
SABA has, within its key quality water supply activities, 1,925 potable water systems with residual chlorine, as well as 909 technical, social and trained implementers.
The Ashaninka community in Bellavista, located in the buffer zone of the El Sira Communal Reserve in Ucayali, is the protagonist of this research project to improve water quality. The promotion and use of the solar bag, which disinfects water, has begun and there has been good receptivity among user families. Its operational principle is based on solar radiation and a nanotechnology mesh.
There are 14 regions of the country where water and sanitation management has been strengthened among public authorities, especially the Housing, Construction and Sanitation Departments / Directorates, which work in coordination with local governments.
Studies of water quality, social acceptance and commercial opportunity will be the variables to evaluate the performance and potential of this disinfection method for scattered Amazonian communities.
3,899 people were benefitted directly from the SABA project and 608,024 also benefitted indirectly
Safe Resource Recovery and Reuse (RRR) The use of resources from wastewater treatment plants for irrigation of green areas, plant waste from markets for the production of compost, and cooking oils for biodiesel production, are the basis for promoting entrepreneurial opportunities linked to the recovery and safe reuse of these resources. This innovative Safe Resource Recovery and Reuse (RRR) project develops training components, sanitation safety planning, and technical-political dialogue platforms.

Three dispersed rural communities located in Piura, Ancash and Ucayali will serve as references for implementing new water and sanitation models in the most distant localities of Peru.
Individuals self-supplying water is a reality in the country. Understanding its complexity and proposing improvements in water quality is the purpose of participatory research on My Solar Water in a jungle rural community.
Promoting entrepreneurship opportunities related to the recovery and safe reuse of waste water, plant waste from markets, and used edible oils, is the innovative bet for Lima.
in 2016 we worked in 17 regions. (Lima, Amazonas, Ancash, Apurímac, Ayacucho, Cajamarca, Cusco, Huancavelica, Huánuco, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Madre de Dios, Piura, Puno, San Martín, Tumbes y Ucayali)
TESTIMONY Despite the difficulties we have in this territory, we're always aware that solidarity is very important to contribute to development. And here we are. That's why I'm grateful that these organizations continue to contribute with so many people that really need this type of support.

More than 45% of women adolescents in rural areas do not complete secondary education, according to the Ministry of Education. We seek that children and adolescents in poverty exercise their right to a quality education with equality and that they develop their potential in an environment without violence and without gender, social or ethnic-linguistic discrimination.
The empowerment of girls and their completion of secondary education are key to breaking the circle of poverty. Girls with opportunities

401 teachers and 6282 students trained in business plans, financial education, entrepreneurship and social security.
I think it's important that appropriate stimulation be given to children under 3 years of age, as there is research that states that infants and toddlers develop 80% of the brain's abilities before that age, so that they can later solve their problems, be responsible, and be good people in the future.
10 Educational Institutions in Junín, La Libertad, Lambayeque and Arequipa initiated curricular programs in entrepreneurial, financial and social education. Women and girls in front 1,746 students participated in learning sessions on sexual and reproductive health, and on the importance of education and social skills.

SECURITY AND NUTRITION
Chronic malnutrition affects more than 370,000 children under the age of five and almost one million have anemia. (ENDES 2016). We implement strategies to ensure the participation of women and social organizations in the fight against chronic child malnutrition and anemia in children. We advocate with the government for implementation of public policies on nutrition and food security, as well as in mental health.
We support the fight against chronic child malnutrition and anemia in favor of Peru's children. We also support women and adolescents with mental health problems -including addictions- so they can access health services. Advocating for child nutrition project
emphasis on women and children.
CARE Perú, coordinator of the Initiative Against Child Malnutrition (IDI), made an effort to ensure that the eight candidates for the Presidency and several candidates for Congress during the 2016 elections sign a commitment to reduce chronic child malnutrition (DCI) to less than 10%, anemia to less than 20%, and increase the public budget for these goals.
Three governance proposals for food security and nutrition were validated, disseminated and assumed by subnational governments and social organizations. Project on developing innovations for food and nutritional security in Peru-Bolivia border integration areas As part of the Regional Council for Food and Nutrition Security (CORESAN), we advocated for the approval of the 2016-2021 Regional Strategy and Plan for Food and Nutrition Security of Puno, which was approved by Regional Executive Resolution. The Strategy seeks to enable the population to meet their nutritional requirements with Andean products to improve their quality of life. The Platform of the Food Security Observatory was also presented.
The IDI digital campaign “President, I also sign for child nutrition” was launched to raise public awareness and engage the government. The current government committed to reducing chronic child malnutrition to 6.4% and anemia to 19% by 2021. The report “Recommendations to the new government for the reduction of chronic malnutrition and childhood anemia” was made to join efforts to improve child nutrition.
The Regional Strategy and Plan for Food and Nutrition Security in Puno was published. CORESAN disseminates it to local authorities, social organizations and the population.
The NGO Nutriedúcate Peru joined the IDI for the mobilization of young people in favor of child nutrition.
A meeting was organized between the ROM Mission (Results Oriented Monitoring) and the CORESAN of Puno. We participated in the organization of the event for World Food Day, whose motto was “The climate is changing - Food and agriculture too”, in order to promote work among institutions linked to food security in Puno; and report on the actions of the Agriculture and Health ministries to promote healthy eating.
An alliance with the Andean Regional Community was set up to develop inter-institutional work in five regions (Apurímac, Ayacucho, Huancavelica, Ica and Junín) for the fight against chronic child malnutrition and anemia. Project on strengthening Andean organizations for public political advocacy of food security in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru

The National Government has undertaken to reduce chronic child malnutrition to 6.4% and anemia to 19% to 2021.
Six regions committed to implementation of the program for the recovery of women that abuse substances.
In 2016 we worked in nine regions. (Lima, Arequipa, Ayacucho, Callao, Huánuco, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Moquegua and Puno) 510 professionals from health centers in Lima and Callao are sensitized and trained to provide primary care to patients with substance abuse and domestic violence problems, with a gender focus, and refer them through the public health network. Support was provided for the validation of the manual “Registration and Coding of Care in the Outpatient Service HIS Information System” of Mental Health - HIS 2016, which allows the standardization of the mental health information system.

actions that strengthen the native potato chain and improve the marketing of tunta (a type of bitter potato) in Ilave, Puno.
"Mr. President, I also sign for child nutrition" is a call that we make so that the authorities are aware that all Peruvians will be very attentive to the engagement you have assumed. It is not acceptable that a child of ours starve to death. Policy decisions have to be made. We cannot turn our backs and ignore our children who are suffering from rape, mistreatment, abuse, and also malnutrition. The numbers are alarming and we're not going to let this keep going unnoticed. Let's fly the flag and make commitments come true.
In MISTURA 2016 (the most important food fair in Peru), tunta producers who participate in the project presented the biodiversity of native potatoes and how they generate income in Puno communities. Educational material aimed at improving child nutrition and reducing anemia in Puno was produced. Demonstration sessions were implemented at 48 health centers of the El Collao Health Network, which will facilitate the development of the educational component aimed at families in the area.
The authorities have signed it, we are attentive, not as an inspector, but in loving awareness, seeking to get the country to look after its children and not let them down or to die of hunger.

EMERGENCIES AND RISK MANAGEMENT
In 2016, there were 4,530 emergencies, leaving 74,516 victims, 2'171,099 affected and 110 deaths. (INDECI 2016) We seek to reduce the effects of disasters in the country by involving vulnerable and affected communities, local governments and regional governments, as well as the central government, scientific and technical bodies and the academia. We develop and strengthen capacities and systems to prevent or mitigate risks in natural events.
We must always be prepared and willing to respond to emergencies, respecting the humanitarian principles and the dignity of people. Binational Project “Together against Zika,” which began at the end of 2016 and will achieve the following results by 2019:
Ten sensitized rural communities are aware of and apply disaster prevention and mitigation actions. Alliance with the Universidad Nacional del Altiplano - UNA (Puno).
1. Good practices in community participation for Zika prevention have been identified 2. Good practices and lessons learned found in qualitative / quantitative studies disseminated and replicated 3. Local governments in the intervention areas apply userfriendly information systems for community surveillance and vector control 4. Communicational strategy for behavior change established and implemented 5. Scaling up the strategy and protocols developed by the project to other areas of the country and the region
Strengthening existing links between hazard identification, monitoring of indicators, early warning systems and timely actions to reduce and / or mitigate risks. Alliances and joint programming were encouraged. Alliances with the Regional Government of Puno, local governments, the National Meteorology and Hydrology Service (SENAMHI), the National Civil Defense Institute (INDECI), Universidad Nacional del Altiplano (UNA) were consolidated, which will generate synergies and a better coordination with the National Disaster Risk Management System (SINAGERD), including the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF).
Reinforcing innovation with participatory mechanisms to increase development and resilience capacities in Rimac Awareness of civil society organizations and local authorities about the vulnerabilities and resources of the Rimac district was strengthened.
Three conferences were held at the National University of Puno to sensitize the academic community in disaster risk management for sustainable development, with more than 500 participants, which led to the completion of a Diploma in Disaster Risk Management aimed at public managers.
Disaster risk management was strengthened through cooperation between civil society organizations and local authorities.
There were 52 graduates (22 municipalities, 13 sectors and 17 technical scientific bodies) in the diploma on Disaster Risk Management offered by the National University of Puno.
A database was installed with a mapping viewer for territory management, including the present risks.
Existing risks were mitigated with the improvement of physical infrastructure and social capacities, promoting a combined effort of local authorities, civil society organizations and local enterprises.
A virtual classroom for risk management training was installed in CENEPRED with four general use and free-of-charge online courses.
Kamaricuy Chaakimanta (Preparing ourselves for droughts and frost)
Together with Universidad ESAN, the training of trainers in disaster risk management was completed, with the “Advanced program of high specialization in disaster risk management”, training teachers from public and private universities in the Andean Regional Commonwealth (Apurímac, Ayacucho, Huancavelica, Ica and Junín). These teachers replicated the diploma in local universities of their respective regions, which led to graduating
20 rural Aymara and Quechua communities are better organized and coordinated with sub-national RRD institutions. More than 40 hydro-meteorological risk mitigation interventions (drought or extreme cold) were implemented to reduce the vulnerability of the population and their livelihoods. The National Plan against Droughts has been approved and the Puno plan is in the process of being built.
Manager of the Emergency and Risk Management Program
Capacities, empowerment and appropriation of innovative measures to cope with the hydro-meteorological hazards in Puno (bio digesters and mini stables) were developed.
We installed a virtual classroom in CENEPRED because there is a very significant need for training in risk management and face-to-face training is not enough, so you have to use the tools of modern times.
We led a consortium with eight NGOs to get ready for El Niño.
We made strategic alliances with institutional actors from different levels of national government, and also scientific and technical actors, as well as those at the subnational level with regional and local governments.
In 2016, we worked in 13 regions. (Lima, Ancash, Apurímac, Ayacucho, Cusco, Huancavelica, Ica, Junin, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Piura, Puno and Tumbes).
TESTIMONY In the past, INDECI always invited us but the people did not go. Receiving a group-by-group training has been very useful and people have been happy with their brochures and materials. Brigader from Trujillo

ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY Accountability for CARE Peru is a process that ensures direct and sustained participation as well as mutual feedback with the population with whom we work, by promoting more equitable power relations and strengthening of organizational management. Therefore, we emphasize:
INFORMATION AND TRANSPARENCY:
We provide information to our beneficiaries and counterparts about our intervention. This allows us to create relationships of respect, trust and transparency.
CARE has a strategy to involve intervention beneficiaries. To do so, it seeks to involve them in the decision-making process by defining mutual responsibilities from beginning to end.
We have considered accessibility as a decisive factor when providing information in order to reach accountability. The work focuses on making information accessible to groups that are more vulnerable due to their remoteness, to speaking a different language, etc. To do so, we have been working to build channels and tools to provide important information to these groups.
This process allows key actors to play an active role in the decision-making processes that affect them. The mechanisms used to guarantee that all are represented are: Project Management Committees, Meetings and Communal Assemblies, Participatory Meetings, Inquiries, etc.
Some tools we use are written, oral, or audio documents, information meetings, assemblies, etc. These are the means used by the organization for beneficiaries, providing them with information they need to know.
Likewise, our institution has mechanisms and open channels for the management of complaints, claims and suggestions. This allows us to understand and verify if we are achieving the necessary changes in our interventions and our actions. These can be positive or negative, allowing us to know if something is going wrong and taking the necessary actions.
in 2016, of participatory messages have been answered and resolved.
We have a telephone line, email, complaint logs, which allow us to gather the voice of the beneficiaries and counterparts. CARE is also working to develop more accessible mechanisms for more vulnerable groups due to their remoteness and lack of access to the media.
* The main means of communication with CARE is emails
OUR SEAL ENABLES US TO DISSEMINATE OUR MECHANISMS:
Accountability and transparency is a right of the people and a duty for CARE Peru. If you have some opinion, complaint or suggestion use toll-free number 0800 â€“ 14417 to call or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
