Whether it’s basketball or soccer, boxing or swimming, sport builds character and promotes teamwork. CARE’s Power Within signature program uses the convening power of sport to engage impoverished youth with each other and their communities. Our strategic combination of sports and education not only means more young people are going to school, but they are also learning leadership skills that can open doors to a better way of life.

We believe that the greatest obstacle to girls’ education is the low social status in which girls are held.
