CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. They place special focus on working alongside 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, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.  CARE tackles underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. Recognizing that women and children suffer disproportionately from poverty, CARE places special emphasis on working with women to create permanent social change. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.  Who They Are CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. They are known everywhere for their unshakeable commitment to the dignity of 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 center because they know that they cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. Values Transformation They believe in urgent action, innovation, and the necessity of transformation—within the world and their own organization. Integrity They are accountable to the people and partners they humbly serve, transparently sharing their results, stories and lessons.  Diversity They know that by embracing differences, actively including a variety of voices, and joining together they can solve the world’s most complex problems. Excellence They challenge themselves to the highest level of learning and performance, tapping the best of the human spirit to create impact. Equality They believe in the equal value of every human being and the importance of respecting and honoring each individual; they know that change happens through people. Core Values Commitment This Core Values Commitment describes who they are, what they do, and how they do it. It reflects their Core Values of TRANSFORMATION, INTEGRITY, DIVERSITY, EXCELLENCE, and EQUALITY, which serve as a foundation for all that they do.  WHAT THEY DO Agriculture and Natural Resources. CARE helps families produce more food and increase their income while managing their natural resources and preserving the environment for future generations.  Cross-Cutting Initiatives. CARE's cross-cutting initiatives span across the breadth of their program sectors to tackle the underlying causes of poverty, and place special emphasis on working with women and girls to create lasting social change.  Economic Development. CARE's economic development programs assist impoverished families by supporting moneymaking activities, especially those operated by women.  Education. They work alongside communities, governments and partner organizations at many levels to address all aspects of basic education. Their inclusive approaches include training teachers and other school personnel to improve the quality of education; linking education programs to interventions in health, nutrition and livelihoods to better address reasons why children are out of school; involving communities in assessing and overcoming their unique barriers to learning; and conducting broad campaigns that promote the right to education for all people. Emergency Relief. Their projects directly assist survivors of natural disasters and conflict through both immediate relief and longer-term community rehabilitation, including food, temporary shelter, clean water, sanitation services, medical care, family planning and reproductive health services, and seeds and tools. Health. CARE's health projects focus on mothers and children, who often are the most vulnerable to disease and malnutrition. They are particularly interested in increasing the capacity of their local partners to deliver quality health services. HIV/AIDS. CARE's HIV/AIDS programs link with their other sectors, including health, education and economic development. Through their HIV/AIDS programs, they help communities care for children orphaned and made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS; develop peer education and outreach in communities; and increase access to services such as condoms, voluntary counseling and testing, anti-retroviral treatment, and STI prevention and treatment. Nutrition. CARE places a special focus on infant and young child feeding and related maternal nutrition practices and care. Their projects focus on teaching techniques and practices that help prevent malnutrition, including proper breastfeeding techniques, educating families and communities about how to cultivate and prepare nutritious complementary food and strengthening local health systems. Water. CARE helps communities build and maintain clean water systems and latrines. Both directly and through local organizations, CARE provides training and subsidizes construction, but communities make significant contributions in cash and labor, and pay the cost of operation and maintenance.
