Since then, CARE has become actively involved in development programming particularly in Upper Egypt, where more than 50 percent of the nation’s poor live.
Today, CARE Egypt’s work is focused primarily on Upper Egypt, where it works closely through a rights-based approach with the poor and marginalized, civil society and government institutions to improve livelihoods on a sustainable basis.
Using community-generated strategies and local resource mobilization, CARE’s work encompasses a number of different sectors including women’s rights, education, governance, civic engagement and agriculture and natural resource management.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
