CARE works with individuals and communities in more than 90 countries around the world.

At the heart of CARE's work is our dedication to defending dignity and fighting poverty by empowering the world's greatest resource for change – women and girls.

Florinda is a mother of five children - all under six years of age- living in the poorest region in Timor Leste. Florinda used to fear not being able to feed her young children - but thanks to support from CARE, she was able to join a community kitchen garden group.
For Margaret, and many other women throughout Malawi, village savings and loans groups have given them the opportunity to change their own lives and find support within their communities.
