The Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE) is an international humanitarian organization, founded in the United States in 1945 and dedicated to fighting global poverty. Its mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities of the world, particularly women who often have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Programming focuses on improving basic education, ending gender-based violence, providing health care and nutrition, increasing access to clean water and sanitation, expanding economic opportunity and protecting natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters and helps people rebuild their lives. Advocating for policy change at all levels is another component of the organization’s work.
Headquartered in Atlanta, CARE has field offices in seven U.S. cities and operates in more than 85 countries. The organization works to address the structural barriers to overcoming poverty such discrimination, corrupt or incompetent political institutions, conflict and social disorder, major public health threats and lack of access to essential public services. Projects range from addressing child marriage in Nepal through behavior change and social mobilization to developing social and environmental standards for reducing deforestation and forest degradation.
