End Poverty for Women and Girls
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.
