We’re on a mission to share news with purpose and powerful stories of women and girls from around the world. CARE works in more than 90 countries, putting us in a unique position to highlight underrepresented voices and places. With a journalistic approach and primarily local reporters, our stories reflect the communities in which they take place. They reveal our shared humanity, make connections across cultures, explore humanitarian work and ideas, and report on global poverty and progress against it. We know the sheer scope and magnitude of the world’s problems can be overwhelming. We invite you to get to know the people and places that define CARE’s mission — and take action. You can have a global impact.

About the organization

CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security.

Founded in 1945 with the creation of the CARE Package®, CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places special focus on working alongside women and girls because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole families and entire communities out of poverty. That’s why women and girls are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve education and health, create economic opportunity, respond to emergencies and confront hunger. Last year, CARE worked in 100 countries and reached more than 55 million people around the world. Learn more at care.org.
