Mission

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.

Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development

Founded in 1945, CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. Working side by side with poor people in 72 countries, CARE helps empower communities to address the greatest threats to their survival. Women are at the heart of CARE’s efforts to improve health, education and economic development because experience shows that a woman’s achievements yield dramatic benefits for her entire family. CARE is also committed to providing lifesaving assistance during times of crisis, and helping rebuild safer, stronger communities afterward. We advocate for policies that defend the dignity of all people and promote the eradication of poverty.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

By 2020, CARE USA and our partners will support 200 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice. Our goals:
•20 million people affected by humanitarian crises receive quality, life-saving humanitarian assistance.
•100 million women and girls exercise their rights to sexual, reproductive and maternal health and a life free from violence.
•50 million poor and vulnerable people increase their food and nutrition security and resilience to climate change.
•30 million women have greater access to and control over economic resources

CARE USA Strategy identifies 5 Bold Moves to help us reach our goals:
- Innovate to multiply or Impact
-Resource the future of the fight against poverty
-Pioneer the metrics of continual progress and accountability
-Grow a movement through story ad engagement
-Transform our operating model to open platform



To fulfill CARE's vision and mission, all of CARE's programs conform to the following programming principles. These principles inform and guide, at a fundamental level, the way we work.

Principle 1 Promote Empowerment
We stand in solidarity with poor and marginalized people and support their efforts to take control of their own lives and fulfill their rights, responsibilities and aspirations. We ensure that key participants and organizations representing affected people are partners in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of our programs.

Principle 2 Work with Partners
We work with others to maximize the impact of our programs, building alliances and partnerships with those who offer complementary approaches, are able to adopt effective programming approaches on a larger scale and/or who have responsibility to fulfill rights and reduce poverty through policy change and enforcement.

Principle 3 Ensure Accountability and Promote Responsibility
We seek ways to be held accountable to poor and marginalized people whose rights are denied. We identify individuals and institutions with an obligation toward poor and marginalized people and support and encourage their efforts to fulfill their responsibilities.

Principle 4 Address Discrimination
In our programs and offices, we address discrimination and the denial of rights based on sex, race, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion, age, physical ability, caste, opinion or sexual orientation.

Principle 5 Promote the Nonviolent Resolution of Conflicts
We promote just and nonviolent means for preventing and resolving conflicts at all levels, noting that such conflicts contribute to poverty and the denial of rights.

Principle 6 Seek Sustainable Results
As we address underlying causes of poverty and rights denial, we develop and use approaches that ensure our programs result in lasting and fundamental improvements in the lives of the poor and marginalized with whom we work.

CARE's Program Approach is how we fight poverty, creating sustained, broad-scale impact in the communities where we work. CARE's Program Approach:

- Focuses on specific marginalized groups, especially women and girls

- Addresses underlying causes of poverty

- Involves advocacy and addresses governance

- Involves long-term engagement

- Measures impact

CARE's Program Approach focuses on initiatives that are efficient, empowering and accountable and will achieve significant and long-lasting results on poverty and social injustice, especially for girls and women.

CARE's SHOUHARDO project, a program with a goal of alleviating childhood stunting due to chronic malnutrition in Bangladesh, fully integrates a gender-focused approach. In less than four years, child stunting within the program's target population dropped 24 percent. It was twice the success of a typical USAID-funded program.

CARE is keeping more girls in school longer. One of our most successful education programs started with just 100 girls in
India, and through adoption by the government, the program is now reaching millions of girls and expanding in seven countries.

CARE is specifically investing in innovation, identifying the most effective programs to drive long-term sustainability in ever-changing environments. We are doing this through programs like our Scale X Design Challenge, an incubator created to dramatically scale-up already successful programs to reach millions more people. CARE held its inaugural event in 2017 which brought together five CARE teams that pitched their innovative solutions to poverty to a panel of expert judges. Three teams received a grant of $150,000 each to scale up their programs, with hopes to reach millions more in need.

To help us reach our 2020 goals we hoped to expand our fundraising in several new markets around the world but we were only able to expand to one new market. Also, we still have some work to do on how we use data to inform decision making. We are currently building an organizational dashboard to help our global teams to do just that.
