international day of the girl

When crisis strikes, girls face a heightened risk of violence and abuse. But when a girl is empowered and can inform the solutions to her unique needs in emergencies, she can help create a more stable and just world.

Congress has the power to protect girls in emergencies, but they won’t fight for girls unless they hear from you.

CARE tackles poverty from multiple angles. Here's how we fight poverty every day:

Disaster Response

Whether it is a sudden emergency or an ongoing crisis, CARE fights to aid people in need around the world. When you FIGHT WITH CARE®, you fight for peace, safety and security.

Food and Nutrition

Hunger and malnutrition remain the leading threats to public health worldwide. When you FIGHT WITH CARE®, you fight for food, futures, and families.

Healthy Mothers and Children

Every day, about 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one woman every 104 seconds. When you FIGHT WITH CARE®, you fight for healthy mothers and children.

Education and Work for Women and Girls

Education and the right to work are the most powerful tools in overcoming extreme poverty and have been a fundamental component of CARE’s programming for decades. When you FIGHT WITH CARE®, you fight for equality.


Help CARE fight poverty and provide emergency relief aid to the poorest communities in the world.
