CARE - India
Volunteer Opportunities: Yes
CARE in India grew out of a vision of ending poverty and achieving social injustice, and it has been working in India for over 65 years. CARE came to India in June 1946 when one of its co-founders, Lincoln Clark, signed the CARE Basic Agreement in New Delhi at the Office of Foreign Affairs. The agreement was limited to contributions of technical books and scientific equipment for universities and research institutes. CARE India’s current program approach stems from a redrawn vision with projects that have holistic, long term impact for poor women and girls.
CARE India helps alleviate poverty and social exclusion by facilitating the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalized communities.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
