Country Info

CARE started operations in Angola in 1989, focusing on emergency humanitarian assistance including food, health, water, sanitation, and one urban development program. In 2002, when the 30-year civil war ended, CARE’s programs shifted to the areas of rights, good governance and decentralization in both urban and rural areas.

CARE Angola works in the provinces of Luanda, Bie, Kuando Kubango, Cabinda, Benguela, Cunene, Huambo, and Huila. The resource-rich country has a strong potential to become independent from foreign aid, but it will be a challenge to ensure those resources benefit all Angolans. 

Our Work in Angola

Child Poverty

Half of all children live in poverty, spending their formative years struggling to survive.  

Poverty & Social Justice

Everyone in the world has the right to a life free from poverty, violence and discrimination.

Child Marriage

Child marriage is a gross human rights violation that puts young girls at great risk.

Why Women & Girls?

Why does CARE fight global poverty by focusing on women and girls? Because we have to.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
