Partnerships

CARE India recognises that the complex issues faced by modern India can only be resolved when the state, the civil society, individuals and corporates join hands, and work with each other. A wide lens approach that accommodates many more partners has become indispensable to avoid failures and multiply the odds of success. The calls to leverage the efforts and capabilities of all stakeholders to step up the impact of poverty reduction programmes are growing louder, and CARE India is working to achieve our goals, through such collborations.
CARE India works with a number of corporates. Some of them have been listed below.
