CARE International Palestine
CARE International around the Globe:
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.
CARE International in the West Bank and Gaza (WBG):
CARE has been providing assistance in the West Bank and Gaza since 1948. Our programs focus on economic empowerment and women’s rights as well as assisting the most vulnerable Palestinians in meeting their basic and long-term needs. CARE WBG’s impact goal is that “By 2030, women and youth from Palestinian communities made most vulnerable by the occupation will realize their rights, reach their full life potential and contribute to a vibrant, equitable and accountable Palestinian society.”
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
CARE 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.
Our mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world.
Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources and decades of experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility.
We facilitate lasting change by:
Strengthening capacity for self-help
· Providing economic opportunity
· Delivering relief in emergencies
· Influencing policy decisions at all levels
· Addressing discrimination in all its forms
Guided by the aspirations of local communities, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.
