When natural disaster strikes, CARE provides emergency food and nutrition support to those affected, especially young children, and pregnant and breastfeeding women. We also help people find new ways to make a living. We support public healthcare by building water and sanitation facilities for families returning home from emergency shelters and work with local organisations and the authorities to rebuild schools in areas affected by conflict, earthquake and floods.
Improving opportunities for women and girls
We work hard to create links with the private sector to improve career opportunities for women and young people living in rural areas. We work with local communities, the private sector and training institutes to help students gain the skills they need to find work or start a business. We encourage Pakistani companies to invest in their staff, improve access to training, jobs and business opportunities for youth, and help increase incomes and productivity.
