In FY20, CARE worked in 104 countries around the world, implementing 1,349 poverty-fighting development and humanitarian aid projects and initiatives to reach 92.3 million people directly. CARE also reached 433.4 million people indirectly through its advocacy, replication of successful programs, and scale up of innovations.
As part of our 2020 Program Strategy goals, CARE is committed to gathering evidence on lasting changes taking place in the lives of people living in poverty. To do this, we are tracking a set of 25 global indicators of change between 2014 and 2020. At present, we have been able to gather evidence in 81 countries and the data shows that CARE has contributed to significant improvements for over 130 million people in those countries.
CARE is one of the leaders among international NGOs in comprehensively reporting the impact of its work around the world. Despite our best efforts to gather information across more than 1,000 projects in over 100 countries, some of the data presented may be incomplete.
