CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in 100 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis.
These solutions have a broad range, from disaster response to food and nutrition to education and work for women and girls to healthy mothers and children.
CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because when they have equal access to resources, they lift their families and communities out of poverty.
Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for 75 years, since World War II.
It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good.
If you share our core beliefs : poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and Fight with CARE.
