CARE International is one of the world’s leading humanitarian and development organisations. Founded in 1945, we have been fighting global poverty and defending the dignity of people around the world for 70 years.
CARE currently works in 79 poor and developing countries, helping millions of the world’s poorest people find routes out of poverty.
We are there to provide life-saving assistance when disaster strikes, and to help people rebuild their lives afterwards.
And we are there to work alongside poor people and communities on long-term programmes to deliver lasting change.
Our programmes and our policy work tackle the underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. We place special focus on empowering women and girls because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to lift whole families and communities out of poverty.
