Zimbabwe

CARE's work in Zimbabwe

CARE began working in Zimbabwe in 1992 in response to a severe regional drought. We then joined forces with local partners in longer-term development programmes, focusing on economic opportunities, agriculture and natural resource management, water and sanitation, and health. Our overall goal is to empower disadvantaged and poor households to meet their basic needs by promoting sustainable livelihoods. Today we work with some of Zimbabwe's poorest and most vulnerable communities – young people, widows, orphans, sex workers and people affected by HIV. We help people living with HIV support themselves financially by providing small loans to start up a business.

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.
