Around the world, women work two-thirds of all working hours, but only earn 10% of the world’s income. When women cannot contribute to their family’s and community’s economic development, a powerful resource goes untapped. That’s why CARE’s programs are defined by promoting gender equality and empowering women.
Empowerment isn’t just about giving a woman a loan. When you fundraise for CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes, you are providing a woman with the opportunity to realize her full human rights. This happens through programs like CARE’s Village Savings and Loan Associations, which show women how to efficiently save and invest, and improve business and marketing skills.

CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes represents CARE’s longstanding commitment to create real impact for women and girls. The flagship Atlanta fundraising walk raises vital funds for CARE projects that help communities overcome barriers to girls’ and women’s security, health and opportunity. The walk is more than an event – it is an opportunity for anyone who believes that poverty is injustice to stand up, speak out, and advocate for a more hopeful, tolerant, and just world
Do you believe that potential is greater than poverty?
Will you help women and girls reach that potential by registering to fundraise for CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes?
