In 2015, CARE worked in 95 countries and reached 65 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs.

We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.
