In 1984, CARE was formally invited by the Government of Rwanda to open an office and establish a comprehensive development program in the country. In the 1980s, even more so than now, the majority of the population was rural and dependent on subsistence agriculture. In addition, Rwanda was at the time hosting many refugees. One of the side effects of this was that forests were being rapidly cut down for energy consumption, thus increasing land erosion and contributing to rapid land degradation. CARE International’s first interventions in Rwanda therefore focused on reforestation, agro-forestry and energy conservation. Increasing access to safe water sources was (and still is) another important objective of CARE Rwanda in its early days. CARE International's Vision They 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. They will be known everywhere for their unshakable commitment to the dignity of people. CARE International's Mission Their mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from their global diversity, resources, and experience, they promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. They facilitate lasting change by: - Strengthening capacity for self-help - Providing economic opportunity - Delivering relief in emergencies - Influencing policy decisions at all levels - Addressing discrimination in all its forms Guided by the aspirations of local communities, they pursue their mission with both excellence and compassion because the people they serve, deserve nothing less.
