We share with our supporters the desire for everyone to have a fair chance in life, an equal opportunity.
For over 75 years, CARE has been providing assistance to those in poverty regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.
CARE Australia supports women around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.
We work in partnership with local communities to provide equal opportunities for women that they have long been denied: the ability to earn an income, gain access to their fair share of resources, to lead and participate in decisions that affect their lives, and to be able to withstand the increasing impacts of climate disasters and other crises.
Who We Are
CARE Australia works to defeat global poverty by supporting women to create lasting change in their communities around the world. Our programs focus on women because we know that when one woman breaks free from poverty, she brings another four people with her — and that’s a powerful multiplier.Who we are
Where The Money Goes
We work hard to ensure your generous donation makes the biggest impact, where it’s needed most. In 2021/22, 89c of every dollar was spent on our lifesaving programs, responding to emergencies and helping to create a more equal world.Read More
Where we work
The CARE Confederation works with people and communities all over the world — every one of us tightly focused on where we can support the most people to defeat poverty and social inequality. As CARE Australia, we have built strong, long-term relationships with partners who work in their own communities in the South-East Asia and Pacific regions and we know that this is where we can be most effective.Read more
From birth, women and girls are denied their fair share of resources like money, education and leadership opportunities. It is unacceptable that women should be disadvantaged compared to men. Women and girls bear the brunt of poverty and are more severely affected by crises like climate change, disasters, COVID-19, conflict and other emergencies.Read more
Women should have equal access to the resources needed to earn an income such as education, land and credit. We help women access the skills, knowledge and resources they need to succeed and lead their families out of poverty.Read more
Emergencies & Crises
Living in poverty is already a daily struggle for survival. But when disaster strikes, that struggle becomes all but impossible. Floods, earthquakes or conflicts can destroy lives and any progress made can be gone in the blink of an eye.Read more
