CARE’s work in Azerbaijan

CARE worked in Azerbaijan from the mid-1990s to 2015. We sought to address the underlying causes of poverty through a combination of income generation and business development, agriculture extension and infrastructure rehabilitation, good governance and civil society development. We worked in peacebuilding projects and offered long-term development support to the poorest rural communities. Our work with women aimed to empower them to stand up for their rights and take an active part in decision-making in their communities. We also worked to improve people’s opportunities to earn a decent living through access to credit, training and technical advice.

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