Liberia

Country Info

CARE Liberia restarted operations in September 2008 after a hiatus of about 25 years. It has since opened offices in Monrovia and Gbarnga, Bong County, and launched a food and income security program in February 2009. Its ultimate goal is consolidated peace through a more productive, fair, and cohesive society, as well as ensured food security and quality of life for vulnerable women and youth.

As operations re-establish, CARE Liberia is focusing on food and income security, with complementary projects in women’s economic empowerment, access to water and sanitation, and urban and conservation agriculture.

 

Our Work in Liberia

Child Poverty

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

Market Access

More inclusive markets and access can help poor people improve their lives.

Microfinance

There’s a “savings revolution” taking place in many developing countries.

Poverty & Social Justice

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

Agriculture

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

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.
