Who We Help
Empowering Farmers & Families
Our CARE Chefs’ Table Advocates are changing the way policymakers and communities think about food in order to empower the millions of people around the world who do not have enough food to eat. Meet some of the farmers who are lifting themselves out of poverty with CARE’s support.
Meet Cecilia Abilio
Cecilia is a mother of five who is the president of a CARE Farmer Field School (FFS) in northern Mozambique. Through the program, Cecilia has learned conservation agriculture techniques, which have helped her significantly increase agricultural production.
Meet Alima Assane
Alima is a mother of five living on a remote island community off the cost of northern Mozambique. Alima’s community struggles with food insecurity due to overfishing and the impact of climate change on the environment.
Meet Carina Nicolas Zamora
Carina is an entrepreneur and mother in the mountainous region of Ayacucho, Peru. Carina is keeping her family healthy thanks to CARE’s microfinance program. This program organized women into small groups, gave them loans of $100 and taught them how to raise guinea pigs, a local delicacy.
Meet Edilberto Soto Tenorio
Edilberto is a potato farmer from Ayacucho, Peru. In 2010, Edilberto joined a CARE program that boosted productivity and connected small-scale farmers to markets in more than 100 communities in Peru.
