CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We 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.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources and experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. We 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, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.

Petitioning Theodore Yoho

Smart solutions can solve global hunger. Tell Representative Yoho to pass the GFSA!

Ask Congress to make the Global Food Security Act the law of the land by passing S.1252, the Global Food Security Act. A very similar version of this bill (H.R. 1567) passed the House on April 12 by a vote of 370-33.  Nearly 800 million people — including tens of millions of children — suffer from chronic hunger. In fact, hunger and malnutrition kill more people than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. The Global Food Security Act is a budget neutral bill that will produce a comprehensive strategy that demands effective and sustainable programs to tackle hunger and build on what we know works – including investments in women and smallholder farmers.  Please take a stand against world hunger and pass S.1252, the Global Food Security Act. Sign to help send this to the president’s desk!
