À propos de CARE

Fondée en 1945, CARE est l'une des principales organisations humanitaires internationales de lutte contre la pauvreté dans le monde. Présente dans plus de 94 pays, CARE œuvre auprès des communautés les plus démunies pour améliorer les services de base en matière de santé et d'éducation, les moyens de subsistance et la sécurité alimentaire des populations rurales, l'accès à l'eau potable et aux installations sanitaires. CARE tente aussi d'élargir les perspectives économiques, d'aider les populations vulnérables à s'adapter aux changements climatiques et de fournir une aide cruciale quand surviennent des situations d'urgence. CARE travaille plus particulièrement avec les femmes et les filles victimes de la pauvreté parce que, lorsqu'elles ont accès aux ressources adéquates, elles ont le pouvoir d'aider des familles et des communautés entières à s'affranchir de la pauvreté.
