CARE is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We are known everywhere for our unshakeable commitment to the dignity of people.
CARE first established its mission in Afghanistan in 1961 but suspended activities after the Russian invasion of 1979. Resuming activities in 1989 from a new base in Peshawar, Pakistan, CARE delivered assistance to Afghanistan from across the border until 2002 when it shifted its main office back to Kabul. CARE Afghanistan’s programs centre around four main areas:
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.
