CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. CARE puts women and girls at the center because they know that poverty cannot be overcome until all people have equal rights and opportunities. CARE’s strategic priorities include food and nutrition security; humanitarian assistance; sexual, reproductive and maternal health; and women’s economic empowerment. CARE aims to improve the lives of 200 million people by 2020. In Asia, CARE has eleven country offices and a regional office based in Bangkok.
