About Us

What does CARE do? We save lives, defeat poverty, achieve social justice, and fight for women and girls.

For 75 years, CARE has led the way to a better life for the world’s most vulnerable people. In 2020, CARE worked in over 100 countries, reaching more than 90 million people through 1,300 projects.

We put women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
