CARE has been working in India for over 60 years, focusing on ending poverty and social injustice . We do this through well-planned and comprehensive programmes in health, education, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response. Our overall goal is the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalised communities leading to improvement in their lives and livelihoods. We are part of the CARE International Confederation working in 84 countries for a world where all people live in dignity and security.


Why Women & Girls?

In India CARE focuses on the empowerment of women and girls because they are disproportionately affected by poverty and discrimination; and suffer abuse and violations in the realisation of their rights, entitlements and access and control over resources. Also experience shows that, when equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities overcome poverty, marginalisation and social injustice. 


CARE International Vision

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. In India, CARE seeks a society which celebrates diversity, where rights are secured, citizenship realized, and human potential fulfilled for all.

CARE India Mission

We facilitate the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalised communities in the fight to overcome poverty, exclusion and social injustice. We nurture leadership internally and among partners to achieve this mission.


CARE India Long Term Goal

Women from the most marginalised communities are empowered, live in dignity and their households and communities are secure and resilient.
