WHO WE ARE
CARE INDIA – CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS IN INDIA FOR WOMEN EMPOWERMENT & CHILD EDUCATION
CARE is a not-for-profit organisation working in India for 70 years, focusing on alleviating poverty and social injustice. We do this through well planned and comprehensive projects in health, education, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response. Our overall goal is the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalised communities leading to improvement in their lives and livelihoods.
During FY 2019-20, CARE India directly reached out to 50.4 million people directly through 53 projects across 19 states, covering more than 90 districts. We are part of the CARE International Confederation, working in 100 countries for a world where all people live with dignity and security.
WHY WOMEN AND GIRLS?
CARE focuses on the empowerment of women and girls because they are disproportionately affected by poverty and discrimination; and suffer abuse and violations in the realisation of their rights, entitlements and access and control over resources. Also, experience shows that, when equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities overcome poverty, marginalisation and social injustice.
