Sadly, in many of the most povertystricken
areas of the globe, women are
not allowed to play a significant role in
society. Which means half of the knowledge,
talent and strength that could
improve conditions is literally going
At CARE, we’ve found in one country
after another that the potential
women have to create change is
nothing short of incredible.
That’s why CARE today is focusing
on empowering women worldwide.
We’re building and supporting schools
that teach girls alongside boys.
We’re introducing community projects
where men and women work together
to accomplish what had seemed
impossible, such as installing their
own lines and treatment centers for
clean water. We’re creating innovative
micro-loan programs to help women
turn indigenous crafts and talents into
products they can export.
We’ve seen the spark ignite when
women realize how, with a little help
getting started, they can become a
force for lasting change.
We’re trying to create a world where,
finally, every person has the opportunity
to realize their potential. Because in
the end, that’s the key to truly ending
injustice and poverty.
