About CARE's Work

Our Mission Statement

CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.

What We Do

CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. Through our community-based efforts focused on empowering women, we work to improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters and helps people rebuild their lives. Women and girls are at the heart of our poverty-fighting and emergency-relief efforts because our six decades of experience shows that their gains translate into benefits themselves, their families and their communities.

Learn more about CARE's work by reading our annual report.

CARE not only feeds the hungry, we also help tackle underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. Recognizing that women and children suffer disproportionately from poverty, CARE places special emphasis on working with women to create permanent social change.

Where We Work

In 2014, CARE worked in 90 countries around the world, supporting 880 poverty-fighting development and humanitarian aid projects to reach more than 72 million people.
