CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.
Last year, CARE reached more than 83 million people in 84 countries around the world through 997 lifesaving and lifechanging projects!
Your gift to CARE will help fight poverty and help empower the women to create a brighter future for all. Here’s how:
- Assist an Entrepreneur: $25 can provide a village savings and loan group with a lock box, ledger and other start-up materials to help put women on the path to financial empowerment.
- Dignity and Support in Times of Crisis: $31 can provide a woman displaced by an emergency with clean clothes, towels, sanitary items and other critical supplies.
- Start a Girl on the Journey of a Lifetime: $49 can send a girl to school for a year. Studies show even one year of education beyond the average boosts a girl's eventual wages by 10-20 percent.
- Hut or Hospital - Tricycle Ambulances Carry Expectant Moms to Safe Delivery: $190 can provide transportation -- such as tricycle ambulances -- to take high-risk, expectant mothers from rural areas to hospitals for quality care, improving the chances that they and their children will survive childbirth.
