Our Education Work

In 2012 alone, CARE reached more than 2.3 million students in 48 countries.  

We work alongside communities, governments and partner organizations at many levels to address all aspects of basic education.

Drawing strength from our global reach, decades of experience, extensive education portfolio and partnerships, we develop innovative learning solutions and provide educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill everyone’s need to learn.

We train train teachers and other school personnel to improve the quality of education while linking education programs to interventions in health, nutrition and livelihoods to better address the reasons children don’t attend school. We also help communities assess and overcome their unique barriers to learning.
