Strategic Direction

CARE contributes to lasting impact at scale in poverty eradication and social justice, in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Gender equality (SDG 5) sits at the heart of our programmatic ambitions and radiates through all of our work.

The CARE 2030 Strategic Direction

​By 2030, CARE and our partners will globally support 200 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice.

CARE aims to globally change lives across multiple impact areas:

GENDER EQUALITY: 50 million people of all genders experience greater gender equality (particularly eliminating GBV, and increasing women and girls’ voice, leadership and education).

HUMANITARIAN ACTION: CARE provides quality, gender-focused and localized humanitarian assistance to 10% of those affected in major crises, reaching at least 50 million people by 2030.

RIGHT TO FOOD, WATER, AND NUTRITION: 75 million people, the majority of them women and girls, increase their fulfilment of their right to adequate food, water and nutrition.

WOMEN’S ECONOMIC JUSTICE: 50 million have more equitable access to and control over economic resources and opportunities.

RIGHT TO HEALTH: 50 million people increase the fulfilment of their right to health, and 30 million women their right to sexual and reproductive health.

CLIMATE JUSTICE: 25 million poor and marginalized people, particularly women and girls, have strengthened their resilience and adaptive capacities to the effects of climate change and are contributing to the energy transition.
