Georgia

CARE’s work in Georgia

CARE began working in Georgia in 1991, when the country was suffering a severe economic crisis. We have continued to work through periods of civil unrest, distributing food and other essentials to people forced to flee from fighting. We particularly focus on vulnerable groups such as orphans, disabled people, pensioners and one-parent households. We 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 work with local organisations to empower women from conflict-affected areas to participate in decision-making.

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.

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 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.
