Vision and Mission

A global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to saving lives and ending poverty

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, inclusion and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live in dignity and security.

Our Mission

CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.

Our Focus

We put women and girls in the centre because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.


Independent of political, commercial, military, ethnic or religious objectives CARE promotes the protection of humanitarian space. We provide assistance on the basis of need, regardless of race, creed or nationality addressing the rights of vulnerable groups, particularly women and girls.

CARE follows a set of Programming Principles in our emergency, rehabilitation and long-term development work.

CARE's principles are aligned with those of many other humanitarian agencies, and include:

  • Promote empowerment

  • Work with partners

  • Ensure accountability and promote responsibility

  • Address discrimination

  • Seek sustainable results

  • Do no harm
