GENDER IN EMERGENCY ADVISOR
Atlanta | Washington D.C.
At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.
This is the vision of CARE, and has been since our founding 70 years ago, when 22 American organizations came together to rush lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to eradicating poverty. In 2015, CARE worked in 95 countries to reach more than 65 million people with 890 life-saving poverty-fighting programs, including maternal and child health, education, food and clean water and more.
CARE is about enabling the human-to-human connections that affirm the dignity of every person on this planet. CARE puts women and girls at the center of its programs both because they are disproportionately impacted by poverty, something we cannot overcome until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
CARE International’s Humanitarian Mandate is to meet the immediate needs of disaster-affected populations in the poorest communities in the world in a way that also addresses the underlying causes of people’s vulnerability. CARE recognizes the link between poverty and gender inequality and the need for humanitarian organizations to design, plan and respond to the needs of affected women, girls, men and boys in ways that promote gender equality.
