CARE was founded in 1945 with the introduction of the original CARE Package. Today, CARE works to end poverty and injustice in 111 countries worldwide.
We put women and girls at the center of our work, because we know that we can’t overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
Over the years, we’ve seen one of the most effective tools to engage women and girls has been the power of sports, so, to celebrate the start of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup — on pace to be the most-attended women’s sporting event ever — we’ve put together this collection of inspiring photos we’ve taken over the years of young girls from around the world playing the beautiful game.
As you journey through these images, you’ll see the joy, resilience, and strength of these young athletes, reminding us of the limitless potential that lies within every girl.
Join us as we cheer on the women from around the world playing in the World Cup, and as we continue our mission to create a world where every girl has the opportunity to be a champion.
