Our Work in Sudan

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.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

South Sudan: Fear after Sunset

“We stay in our tent every night because bad things happen at night here. It’s not safe,” says Josephine, who sits with her four children in a tent the size of a small closet.

Unable to leave their tents after the sun goes down even to use the bathroom for fear of being attacked or sexually assaulted, women and girls in South Sudan tell me they sometimes feel like prisoners.  

South Sudan: Surviving on Hopes for Peace

“When will the world help us live in peace again?” That’s the burning question that Nyagadh has as she tries to resume some kind of life in an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp, but living in fear of fighting and wondering how she will feed her family is not the life she thought she would have to face again.

CARE Hack: Clean Stoves

Currently, some 2 billion people worldwide do not have access to clean, safe cooking fuels.

This contributes to economic, health and environmental problems, including deforestation, and places an enormous burden on poor families.

CARE has significant experience introducing clean energy products in vulnerable communities.  

In Darfur, Sudan, for example, CARE introduced fuel-efficient stoves to reduce demand on the region’s scant supply of firewood – a source of communal tension and violence.
