Non-political and non-sectarian, CARE International is a confederation made up of 12 national Members fighting poverty in over 65 countries. Each year we implement more than 1000 projects, reaching 50 million people in the most vulnerable communities. The CARE International Secretariat is based in Geneva.
CARE tackles underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. We seek lasting solutions and improvements by working closely with local communities and partners.
CARE’s projects focus on the underlying causes of poverty and discrimination. They cover a wide range of social and economic issues, including:
- food security;
- economic activity development;
- agriculture and natural resource management;
- water and sanitation;
CARE also responds in emergencies such as natural disasters or civil conflict and helps survivors through immediate relief and longer-term community rehabilitation.
CARE works with over a million individuals, private foundations, corporations, national governments and multilateral organizations worldwide.
