Empower Her Through Education

On International Day of the Girl, We Fight to End Hunger

What does education have to do with hunger? Malnutrition affects every stage of life and has severe consequences. Chronically malnourished children face lifelong consequences in reduced mental capacity, lower retention in school and reduced lifetime earnings.

At CARE, we’re helping girls get a lifesaving education, and we are partnering with Alba Botanica®, Avalon Organics® and JĀSÖN® to do it. Each brand has an area of unique interest in helping CARE change the circumstances of so many:

  • Alba Botanica® is all about girl power, and is working with CARE to find ways to unlock it.
  • Avalon Organics® believes, along with CARE, that girls from all backgrounds should have access to education, so we are working to advocate for changes in local and government-level policy to make this possible.
  • JĀSÖN® is standing with CARE, helping mothers and communities shape bright futures for girls as they strive to do more.

Together, we are unlocking girls potential, advocating for their rights, and standing with mothers and communities to help shape brighter futures.
