Help Her Live, Learn and Earn
From March-June 2016, donations by CARE supporters to the Help Her Live, Learn and Earn campaign were doubled by the UK government – with the extra funds going directly to a water, sanitation and women’s rights project that aims to reduce the extreme vulnerability of very poor and marginalised people in the Afar region of Ethiopia.

Fighting HIV and AIDS
In Addis Ababa, CARE is reducing the number of children who are infected with HIV at birth by raising awareness about HIV and AIDS and how it can be prevented among women of childbearing age. We combine awareness-raising activities, such as community-led education campaigns and school clubs, with voluntary counselling and testing services, where tests are carried out for a fraction of the cost of private testing. In addition, we work in partnership with local community groups to provide support and care to those most affected by HIV and AIDS such as the elderly, bed-ridden patients and orphans.
