Working together to fight poverty
We believe that solving the complex challenges of poverty and social injustice can best be achieved by working with others.
CARE International is committed to operational partnerships that are empowering, respectful, and focused on mutual learning and growth. We know that partnership amplifies our impact, and that poverty and social injustice can best be addressed through strategic and impactful alliances with a range of actors from government, civil society, private sector, and beyond.
By pooling resources and expertise, we believe that our collective action is greater and more impactful than what we can deliver on our own.
Types of partners
In addition to funding partners, we work with a range of actors from local project partners and advocacy allies to research and technical institutions and suppliers.
Project partners, at local or national level, bring knowledge and understanding of poverty and injustice as they play out in their own community and country context.
They may be grassroots organizations, cooperatives, small businesses, or government officials, who best understand the issues at stake. We aim to support, enhance and share learnings, skills, and capacities with partners in ways that allow communities to unleash their full potential.
Advocacy allies allow us to give more prominence to the issues and voice of those affected by poverty and injustice. We partner with humanitarian and development NGOs, prominent advocates, national and regional alliances, and celebrities to amplify the voice of those affected and the changes needed to achieve victories over poverty.
Research and technical institutions bring world-class academic knowledge and technical advances to the fight against poverty. These partnerships are critical to capture and apply new ideas, knowledge, and practice to real-world settings.
Suppliers deliver essential goods and services needed to advance our emergency and development programs.
