Making a Difference: Empowering Girls, Expanding Knowledge, Addressing Poverty
CARE began operations in Honduras in 1954, providing emergency assistance to hurricane victims and running small-scale food programs. CARE officially established its country office in Honduras in 1959, beginning with food distribution programs and eventually moving toward a sustainable development program.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

Mapping the Effects of Climate Change on Human Migration and Displacement

As we celebrate International Day of the Girl, we can’t help remind ourselves of our own childhood.
We believe that the greatest obstacle to girls’ education is the low social status in which girls are held.
The world’s future will be largely shaped by today’s girls and tomorrow’s women. A growing body of evidence indicates that girls’ well-being is critical to progress on a range of developmental outcomes: an educated girl is more likely to delay marriage and childbirth, enjoy greater income and productivity and raise fewer, healthier and better-educated children.1 Indeed, investments in girls’ education may go further than any other spending in global development.
In 2008, CARE launched an ambitious Market Engagement Strategy that aims to empower 10 million women and girls to transition from poverty to prosperity by 2015 by improving their ability to access and benefit from markets and employment. This report represents a first assessment of how we are doing.
