CARE’s work in Egypt began in 1954 with the introduction of a nationwide school meals program.
Since then, CARE has become actively involved in development programming particularly in Upper Egypt, where more than 50 percent of the nation’s poor live.
Today, CARE Egypt’s work is focused primarily on Upper Egypt, where it works closely through a rights-based approach with the poor and marginalized, civil society and government institutions to improve livelihoods on a sustainable basis.
Using community-generated strategies and local resource mobilization, CARE’s work encompasses a number of different sectors including women’s rights, education, governance, civic engagement and agriculture and natural resource management.
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.
