Kosovo

CARE’s work in Kosovo

CARE has worked in Kosovo since 1997. Initially providing humanitarian aid for people displaced by war, our current programmes support economic activities, peace and reconciliation. Unemployment in Kosovo is extremely high. We work with rural communities, particularly young people, to help them secure sustainable regular income from farming and small businesses such as beekeeping and tourism. We place a strong emphasis on supporting local organisations, especially those dedicated to supporting marginalised groups such as Roma or other minorities. We work with local organisations to address gender-based violence and human trafficking.

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.
