CARE Australia

CARE Australia is a leading international aid organisation that works around the globe to save lives and defeat poverty. They know they cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. For those living in extreme poverty, support brings education and training, healthcare and clean water, nutritious food, and new ways to earn an income. And in times of crisis, help them deliver emergency relief. CARE has been committed to helping the world’s most vulnerable people since the first CARE packages were sent to the survivors of World War II in 1945. They seek to end extreme poverty for all who experience it. They provide assistance to those in poverty regardless of race, religion or ethnicity. They have learnt from their work across 94 countries that when inequality is tackled, long-term lasting change is possible. They put women and girls at the heart of their work. Their access to equal opportunities represents a powerful and effective opportunity to end extreme poverty. When one woman escapes poverty, she will bring four others with her. Mission and Vision CARE is a leader within the global movement dedicated to ending poverty. They have become known through their 70 years of helping people for their unshakeable commitment to the dignity of all people. Mission CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. Vision They seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security. Focus They put women and girls in the centre because they know that they cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
