We seek a world of hope, tolerance, and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. CARE International will be a global force and a partner of choice within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We will be known everywhere for our unshakable commitment to the dignity of people.
CARE’s reason for being is to affirm the dignity and worth of individuals and families in some of the poorest communities of the world. We seek to relieve human suffering, to provide economic opportunity, to build sustained capacity for self-help, and to affirm the ties of human beings everywhere. We are committed to pursuing our mission with excellence because the people whom we serve - beneficiaries and donors - deserve nothing less.
