Empower Women to Change the World

When you give a woman the chance to start a business, learn how to read or have a safe pregnancy and childbirth, her actions will create ripples of change.

She can lift families, communities and nations out of poverty.

You can help her do it.

In their new book, "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide," Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn share poignant tales of women's struggles and triumphs in the face of poverty and discrimination. "Half the Sky" brings attention to the fact that women make up more than 60 percent of the poorest people on earth, yet hold the potential to change the world as we know it.

Why Invest in Women?

At CARE 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.

Why Give to CARE?

CARE has been deeply committed to fighting poverty in many of the world’s poorest communities since 1945.

Last year, CARE delivered life-changing services and lifesaving emergency aid to 55 million women and families in 66 countries. CARE provided training and resources for women to start their own businesses. We helped girls get their education by supporting communities seeking change. We helped women access the training and resources they needed to grow their own crops and feed their families. And we helped millions of pregnant women and infants receive maternal and child health services so they could stay healthy and strong. Learn more about our work.

I recently made an online donation to CARE. I decided to join hands with you after seeing CARE's impressive organizational efficiency and its dedication to empowering women all over the world. I believe, like you, that educating women strengthens communities and also encourages future generations to achieve their hopes and dreams.
