Montenegro

CARE’s work in Montenegro

CARE has worked in Montenegro since the 1990s. Initially providing humanitarian aid for refugees and others affected by war, we now focus on building sustainable peace and development across the Balkans.

Conflict has led to high levels of poverty and unemployment, so we work to improve people’s options to earn a decent living. We work with local organisations and student associations to promote peace, reconciliation and democracy,  and support the integration of minorities into society. We place special focus on working alongside poor girls and women to tackle gender inequality.

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.
