Yemen

Country Info

CARE has been continuously active in Yemen since 1993, in projects that work towards reducing poverty. CARE’s work in Yemen has a common focus on community self-help and women’s empowerment, including women’s literacy, water management, capacity building of local organizations, emergency response, and relief assistance to refugees. 

In addition, CARE is working in Yemen to help refugees fleeing violence in Syria.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.

The work we do in Yemen

Child Poverty

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

Youth Empowerment

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

Girls' Education

The majority of the 57 million children out of school are girls — their future is at risk.

Poverty & Social Justice

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

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.
