CARE has been working in India for over 65 years, focusing on allleviating poverty and social injustice. They can do this through well planned and comprehensive programmes in health, education, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response.
Their overall goal is the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalised communities leading to improvement in their lives and livelihoods. We are part of the CARE International Confederation working in 90 countries for a world where all people live with dignity and security.
In India, CARE focuses on the empowerment of women and girls because they are disproportionately affected by poverty and discriminations; and suffer abuse and violations in the realization of their rights, entitlements and access and control over resources.
Also their experience shows that, when equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities overcome poverty, marginalization and social injustice.
They seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
Setting high standards of performance for self and/or others; assuming responsibility and accountability for successfully completing assignments or tasks; self-imposing standards of excellence; ensuring interactions and transactions are ethical and convey integrity.
