CARE fights global poverty. We focus our efforts on girls and women because they are disproportionately affected by poverty. Our seven-plus decades of experience have shown us that when you empower a girl or a woman, she becomes a catalyst, creating ripples of positive change that lift up everyone around her: other girls, women, boys and men.
CARE has put forth a bold goal of ending poverty in this generation. We will broaden our reach to 200 million people by 2020 in the areas of humanitarian and emergency response, food and nutrition, maternal and child health, and education and work for women and girls.
