are we?

Founded in 1945, CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty around the world. CARE specially focuses on working with women and young girls, because if equipped with the right resources, they have the power to get their entire families and communities out of poverty. In 2022, CARE worked in more than 110 countries, reaching more than 170 million people through 1,600 projects.

Our Vision

We strive towards building a world full of hope, tolerance, and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people can live with dignity and security.

Our Mission

CARE works all over the world to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.

 Our Goal

We consider women and young girls as our center point as we are aware that we cannot overcome poverty unless everyone has the same rights and opportunities.

Our Values

To strengthen our programmatic principles, we also have organizational values that lead our behavior both inside and outside the institution. These values are a distinctive aspect of our workers’ ethics and of the organization’s best practices at all levels:


We believe in adopting urgent steps towards innovation, and in the need to transform the world and our own organization.


We are responsible with both our partners and the rest of the people, to whom we serve transparently, by sharing our results, stories, and lessons.


We know that by integrating people’s differences, and actively including a wide variety of voices, we can solve the most complex problems of the world.


We believe in the equal value of every human being, and in the importance of respecting and honoring each individual, as we know that change happens through people.


We challenge ourselves to the highest level of performance and learning, thus reaching the deepest part of the human soul to make an impact.



To accomplish CARE’s mission and vision, our tasks to perform are driven by six programmatic principles contained in CARE International Codes of Conduct. These principles are not optional, and they set the foundation and direction of our identities and work approaches throughout the world. These principles are the following:
