Country Info

CARE began its work in Cuba in 1995. Based on our more than 15 years of experience in Cuba, we believe that we can contribute to the development of vulnerable areas and offer capacity, support and expertise as the country updates its social and economic models.

CARE implements programs in collaboration with Cuban partners and supports capacity development while generating dialogue and learning.
