Child Poverty

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

Clean Water

Access to clean water and decent toilets saves lives and helps families and communities prosper.

Poverty & Social Justice

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


By failing to close the gender gap in agriculture, the world is paying dearly.

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.
