About CARE International

CARE International is one of the world’s largest aid agencies, fighting poverty and injustice in over 80 countries around the world, and helping 65 million people each year to find routes out of poverty. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives in the aftermath. The organization works with private sector companies to co-create opportunities for poor and marginalized people to have better access to goods, services and livelihoods. Its programs tackle the deep-seated root causes of poverty, not just the consequences.
