CARE is an international humanitarian organsation working to end world poverty. With programs in over 70 countries, CARE is addressing the needs of developing communities around the world. CARE is working to promote positive change and reduce long-term dependency by supporting projects that focus on areas as diverse as primary health care, sustainable agriculture or water and sanitation. CARE also responds to humanitarian crises when they arise in the developing world.
CARE Canada, a member of the international organisation, works in 30 African countries. Their staff work closely with local community organisations, governments and individuals to improve the quality of life of people in some of the world's poorest communities. CARE Canada is addressing the needs of these communities through projects that focus on income generation, health, education, HIV/AIDS prevention and counseling, water and sanitation, micro-finance and emergency assistance.
