About Us

What does CARE do? We save lives, defeat poverty, achieve social justice, and fight for women and girls.

CARE Egypt Foundation (CEF) is an Egyptian, non-governmental organization harnessing the legacy of CARE International in Egypt since 1954 to fight poverty and improve livelihoods.

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.


We put women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
