This CARE Market Engagement Innovations and Impacts Case Study features the experiences of CARE Kenya under the five-year Dak Achana Project. The case was selected for inclusion in the series due to its focus on food security, a growing area of priority across a range of CARE country office programs. Dak Achana applied a multi-dimensional approach to improving food security that included components on food for work, VSLA, HIV/AIDS, agriculture and market engagement, and water and sanitation. Emerging lessons have direct relevance to other CARE country offices and other actors looking to overcome food security constraints through integrated strategies that include market engagement.
