CARE International is one of the world’s three biggest aid agencies.
In the last year, we worked in 87 countries, supporting 905 poverty-fighting projects that reached more than 82 million people.
Our mission is to create lasting change in poor communities and we put money where it is needed most.
Ninety pence in every pound goes towards our poverty fighting programmes - that’s one of the highest rates among all the UK aid agencies.
With more than 60 years’ practical and hands-on experience, our programmes tackle the deep-seated root causes of poverty, not just the consequences.
This often involves working across a range of areas where people's needs are very tangible - provision of clean water, health services and teacher-training, for example.
But it can also involve helping people to be masters of their own situation - strengthening their ability to influence decision-makers or demand their rights to crucial services or resources.Even our best programmes can only touch so many lives. We expand our impact by influencing policy-makers in both the developing or developed worlds.
