Global Network

Global Network

CARE International is a global confederation of 14 National Members, 6 Candidates and 1 Affiliate with a common vision and mission to defeat poverty. Each CARE Member is an independent organisation that leads programmes, raises funds, advocates on key issues, communicates to the public in their country, and supports the work of CARE’s programming in 100 countries across the world. CARE has been advancing efforts to build a more diverse membership and overall organisational model since 1998, setting intentional strategies to achieve this.

  • In 2014, recognising the growing need for change, CARE committed to a fundamental realignment of its membership, setting an ambitious goal to have more than half of its Members from the Global South by 2020.   
  • In 2017, noting that diversifying through a track to membership alone was not sufficient, CARE agreed on a set of strategic approaches and actions- a more dynamic, evolving and creative process of change.
  • In 2018, current, new and emerging ‘Global South’ Members produced ‘The Cairo Compact’, a compelling proclamation of commitment to, and call for, changes by the whole organisation in order to truly leverage diversity and be best poised for the future.
  • In 2019, the organisation is engaging staff, participants, partners and external stakeholders to cast a vision for the CARE of the Future.  

The CARE International Secretariat coordinates and supports this network to achieve common impact goals and shared global priorities. It leads CARE’s global advocacy and represents the confederation at the United Nations, the European Union and at key global forums. The Secretariat in Geneva hosts the CARE Emergency Group and the CARE International Safety and Security Unit, with hubs also in Brussels and New York; within Switzerland, CARE also works to engage donors, and supporters of our global portfolio of humanitarian and development initiatives.
