Why Advocacy?

For decades, CARE has complemented our programmatic work on
the ground with advocacy efforts that multiply our impact and
lift up those in greatest need, especially women and girls. CARE’s
commitment to advocacy draws from our experience in more
than 90 countries around the world and promotes U.S. policy
reforms that foster strong, resilient communities and respond to
humanitarian needs.

CARE’s advocacy supports the efforts of poor women, girls and
families by promoting policy reforms that improve U.S. foreign
assistance programs and address the lack of access to resources
and opportunities – creating a ripple effect that impacts their daily lives.
