Our Vision

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

The work we do in Brazil

Child Poverty

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


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

Youth Empowerment

Addressing the needs of the 1.8 billion young people in the world is critical to ending poverty.

Girls' Education

The majority of the 57 million children out of school are girls — their future is at risk.

Poverty & Social Justice

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


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

Climate Change

Climate change threatens the very survival of people living in poverty all over the world.

Why Women & Girls?

Why does CARE fight global poverty by focusing on women and girls? Because we have to.
