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

The best part of our work is sharing the stories of the people we serve – whether directly from them or via our staff in the field, through words, photos, videos, and more. These stories represent why we do the work that we do and they inspire us each and every day.

"I want to fight against child marriage; I want to learn as much as possible and excel in school and become a journalist."
For Mama Adey, it was too painful seeing women and girls suffer and she wished that something urgent be done.
Yvette and her neighbours in Port-au-Prince’s Carrefour district have built a great deal since the earthquake five years ago. But what she’s most proud of isn’t bricks and mortar. It’s unity.
