Myanmar

Country Info

CARE has worked in Myanmar since 1995 with the aim to improve the living standards of rural communities through health intervention programs, including HIV/AIDS prevention and care, as well as nutritional support for pregnant mothers and children; food security and livelihoods programs, comprised of support for agriculture, fisheries, and livestock; and water, sanitation and hygiene.

As cross-cutting measures, CARE Myanmar is addressing disaster risk reduction and gender.

 

Our Work in Myanmar

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.

Family Planning

Family planning is a proven strategy in reducing maternal mortality.

Child Survival

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

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.

Maternal Health

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

Agriculture

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

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.

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.

Bright Future Ahead

I was very happy when CARE asked me to write a story about my life because I wanted to share my experiences and struggles with others. I want others to be able to reach their goals in life with few obstacles in their way. I want them to lead fulfilling and pleasant lives like me. My life could be written into a novel. My bright future is thanks to the good people in my life who guided me towards happiness and good health.

Asia Impact Report 2005-2010

This report is an analytical review of CARE’s programs and projects undertaken with partners and allies in 16 countries over the period 2005–2010. It explores CARE’s principal strategies for achieving positive impact by drawing on a broad range of evaluations and other assessments produced over the period. 

These Are Our Sisters

Gender-based violence is one of the most widespread – but least recognized – human rights abuses in the world. Globally, one out of three women will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. This violence is happening to our sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters around the world.

This violence leaves survivors with long-term psychological and physical trauma; tears away at the social fabric of communities; and is used with terrifying effect in conflict settings, with women as the main target.
