CARE Women’s Network

The CARE Women’s Network (CWN) is made up of passionate women committed to our mission of saving lives, defeating poverty, and achieving social justice.

Members galvanize their communities to raise awareness and support for our women’s empowerment programs, while enjoying exclusive and meaningful opportunities to learn, advocate, and network with other leaders.

We welcome you to learn more and become a part of our growing network.

Why Women and Girls’ Empowerment?

One of the root causes of poverty is women’s and girls’ lack of control over their lives. If empowered through education, economic opportunity, or choice, a woman or girl can be a catalyst for lasting positive change in her community.

Our Impact

  • Educate communities about CARE’s programs addressing global poverty – including issues such as girls’ education and gender-based violence – by hearing from dedicated CARE staff, program participants, and other experts.
  • Advocate for CARE both locally and on Capitol Hill around the issues that impact CARE’s mission and make social change possible.
  • Raise awareness and financial support for CARE projects focused on women and girls’ empowerment.
