Egypt

CARE’s work in Egypt

CARE started working in Egypt in 1954, providing food to starving people, including through a nationwide school meals programme. Today, we promote quality education and girls’ leadership, more effective and equitable natural resource management to enhance rural livelihoods, effective governance and civic engagement and equitable social protection for vulnerable groups – especially women. We work with Syrian refugees, providing psychosocial support to help people overcome trauma. We use youth theatre to raise awareness among young men of gender-based violence and change attitudes towards the oppression of women in Egyptian society.

CARE's reach

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

Our mission

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
