Why Advocacy?

For decades, CARE has complemented our programmatic work on the ground with advocacy efforts that multiply our impact and lift up those in greatest need, especially women and girls. CARE’s commitment to advocacy draws from our experience in more than 100 countries around the world and promotes U.S. policy reforms that foster strong, resilient communities and respond to humanitarian needs.

CARE’s advocacy supports the efforts of poor women, girls and families by promoting policy reforms that improve U.S. foreign assistance programs and address the lack of access to resources and opportunities – creating a ripple effect that impacts their daily lives.
