CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We are known everywhere for our unshakable commitment to the dignity of people. CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security.
We put women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We believe in urgent action, innovation, and the necessity of transformation—within the world and our own organization. We are accountable to the people and partners we humbly serve, transparently sharing our results, stories and lessons.
We know that by embracing differences, actively including a variety of voices, and joining together we can solve the world’s most complex problems. We challenge ourselves to the highest level of learning and performance, tapping the best of the human spirit to create impact. We believe in the equal value of every human being and the importance of respecting and honoring each individual; we know that change happens through people.
The Core Values Commitment describes who we are, what we do, and how we do it. It reflects our Core Values of TRANSFORMATION, INTEGRITY, DIVERSITY, EXCELLENCE, and EQUALITY, which serve as a foundation for all that we do.
