CARE’s work in Armenia

CARE began working in Armenia in the mid-1990s, offering development assistance to the poorest rural communities. We worked with local communities, businesses and government to improve people’s opportunities to earn a living. Combining income generation and business development, agriculture extension and infrastructure rehabilitation, good governance and civil society development, we worked to address the underlying causes of poverty. From 2010-15 we worked to empower women from conflict-affected areas to stand up for their rights and participate in peacebuilding and decision-making.

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.

CARE's impact

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

Our aims

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.
