496,000 children younger than 5 are at risk of malnutrition

You can help today by making a gift to support CARE's emergency relief efforts in Mali and poor and war-torn countries around the world.

Country Info

CARE began its work in Mali in 1975 to help the government respond to an emergency. The work gradually shifted from emergency projects to programs aimed at helping local communities take initiatives for their own development. We emphasize the promotion of democratic governance, including helping community organizations become more effective.

We use partnerships to help build the sustainability of civil society. And we seek to defend the rights of the most vulnerable and marginalized people to obtain basic services. CARE’s program is one of the largest in Mali and is part of the Malian government’s poverty alleviation strategy.

Our Work in Mali

Child Poverty

Half of all children live in poverty, spending their formative years struggling to survive.  

Market Access

More inclusive markets and access can help poor people improve their lives.

Microfinance

There’s a “savings revolution” taking place in many developing countries.

Youth Empowerment

Addressing the needs of the 1.8 billion young people in the world is critical to ending poverty.

Family Planning

Family planning is a proven strategy in reducing maternal mortality.

HIV & AIDS

Poverty is both a cause and consequence of HIV and AIDS.

Child Survival

This year, more than 7 million children will die before their 5th birthday.

Clean Water

Access to clean water and decent toilets saves lives and helps families and communities prosper.

Poverty & Social Justice

Everyone in the world has the right to a life free from poverty, violence and discrimination.

Maternal Health

Hundreds of thousands of women die in pregnancy and childbirth, mostly from preventable causes.

Agriculture

By failing to close the gender gap in agriculture, the world is paying dearly.

Climate Change

Climate change threatens the very survival of people living in poverty all over the world.

Child Marriage

Child marriage is a gross human rights violation that puts young girls at great risk.

Violence Against Women

Gender-based violence is one of the most pervasive and yet least-recognized human rights abuses.

Why Women & Girls?

Why does CARE fight global poverty by focusing on women and girls? Because we have to.
