Gender equality is CARE International’s central organizing principle. We cannot achieve economic justice, climate justice, health equity, the right to food, water, and nutrition, or equal access to humanitarian assistance without addressing gender inequality.
By 2030, CARE International seeks to support 50 million people to experience greater gender equality in their lives. Read our detailed strategy on why and how we aim to achieve this.
We focus on improving the rights of women, adolescent girls, and marginalized groups in three main areas:
- Eliminating gender-based violence
- Increasing women’s and girls’ voice and leadership
- Equal access to quality education
Indashyikirwa, Bihar, and She Soars are three of CARE’s flagship programs that clearly demonstrate our gender equality work in practice.
