CARE India is a leading developmental organisation in India with an extensive global network. Through our pro-poor programmes, we have impacted on extreme poverty and social injustice in India by working with poor women and girls from the most disadvantaged communities. We place a special emphasis on working with poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, boost maternal and child health, prevent the spread of HIV & Tuberculosis (TB) and expand economic opportunity. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
WHY WOMEN AND GIRLS?
CARE India recognises that women and girls are disproportionately affected by unequal power relations, consistently experience violation of their rights and face discrimination in their personal and public lives. Consequently, for 61 years, we have been working in India to help millions of women and girls find lasting solutions to poverty. By developing the potential of women and girls, we help millions of people effect real, positive changes in their lives every year.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
CARE International will be a global force and a partner of choice within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We will be known everywhere for our unshakable commitment to the dignity of people.
In India we seek a society which celebrates diversity, where rights are secured, citizenship realised, and human potential fulfilled for all.
