Building resilience

Acting on climate change

We empower vulnerable people to take action on climate change.

Giving people a voice

We tackle the unequal power relations that cause and perpetuate poverty.

The injustice of poverty

Together, we can end injustice and overcome poverty.

We help people take their future into their own hands

Governance and participation

Ensuring that governments and public bodies respond to the concerns of poor and marginalised people is crucial to ending poverty.

Responding to climate change

The poorest people are hardest hit by climate change – but they are also the ones working hardest to adapt to it.

Tackling injustice

Poverty is not random, inevitable, or the fault of poor people – it exists because of injustice. So fighting poverty also means helping people stand up for their rights.


Helping people find shelter in an emergency and rebuild their homes afterwards is a first step towards rebuilding every other aspect of their lives.

Conflict resolution

Conflict causes poverty, makes poverty worse, and stands in the way of reducing poverty. We work to prevent conflict and support people to recover from it.

Supporting refugees

There have never been more refugees and displaced people in need of support than there are today. CARE is there to help them.

CARE's impact

We work in 104 countries around the world, 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 75 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.
