CARE India is an independent member of the CARE International Confederation which is present in over 90 countries.
There are four primary areas in which we run programmes, namely education, health, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response. Our work includes bringing about gender transformative change, building resilience and inclusive governance.
We work in 14 states in India. They are Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Delhi/NCR, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. Our work focuses on India; we do not have projects in other countries.
The money collected from our fundraising initiatives are used for:
- Empowering women and girls from poor and marginalised communities to rise above abject poverty and social exclusion
- Funding our extensive programmes across 14 states like providing education to out-of-school girls, reducing infant mortality and improving maternal health, facilitating sustainable livelihoods for project participants, and reducing malnutrition among marginalised families
- Bringing about a more gender equal society, build resilience among communities to overcome exclusion, poverty and disasters, and connect women entrepreneurs to markets
- Strengthening healthcare and education delivery systems so that benefits reach the last mile
- Building capacity of teachers, anganwadi workers and other functionaries to be able to reach quality service on time to the project participants
