Our Work in Cameroon

Child Poverty

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

Family Planning

Family planning is a proven strategy in reducing maternal mortality.


Poverty is both a cause and consequence of HIV and AIDS.

Child Survival

This year, more than 7 million children will die before their 5th birthday.

Poverty & Social Justice

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

Maternal Health

Hundreds of thousands of women die in pregnancy and childbirth, mostly from preventable causes.

Child Nutrition

Malnutrition affects 200 million children and the consequences can last a lifetime.

Child Marriage

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

Violence Against Women

Gender-based violence is one of the most pervasive and yet least-recognized human rights abuses.

Why Women & Girls?

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