CARE USA

We work to fight poverty and achieve social justice by empowering women and girls.

CARE is a leading humanitarian global organization. We deliver lasting change to some of the world's poorest communities and place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.

For 75 years, CARE has led the way to a better life for the world’s most vulnerable people. In 2020, CARE worked in over 100 countries, reaching more than 90 million people through 1,300 projects.
