You can help today by making a gift to support CARE's emergency relief efforts in Mali and poor and war-torn countries around the world.
CARE began its work in Mali in 1975 to help the government respond to an emergency. The work gradually shifted from emergency projects to programs aimed at helping local communities take initiatives for their own development. We emphasize the promotion of democratic governance, including helping community organizations become more effective.
We use partnerships to help build the sustainability of civil society. And we seek to defend the rights of the most vulnerable and marginalized people to obtain basic services. CARE’s program is one of the largest in Mali and is part of the Malian government’s poverty alleviation strategy.
