WHAT WE DO

Join My Village supports CARE programs in education, food and agriculture, and economic empowerment. We support education in India by providing leadership training and school support for girls; we enable women in Malawi to start businesses, invest and save; and we work alongside farmers in rural communities in West Africa to help promote sustainable farming and better business practices. Here you will find out where we work, why we work there, and how we are helping.

WHERE WE WORK

With support from Cargill and General Mills, CARE programs that are featured on Join My Village are helping to create healthier, better educated, economically empowered and agriculturally sustainable communities in India, Ghana, Malawi and Cote D’Ivoire. Join My Village provides regular updates from CARE projects in remote cocoa fields, tiny villages in Malawi and bustling communities near New Delhi. Each region has unique challenges and opportunities – which are being addressed with CARE’s decades of expertise and innovative solutions.
