CARE started work in: 1988

CARE International has been working in Armenia since 1988, working at a cross-border and regional level to support the development of civil society and reduce poverty.

History of CARE International’s work in Armenia 

CARE International has been working in the Caucasus, a region located on the borders of Europe and Asia, since 1988 when it responded to the Spitak earthquake in Armenia. In the early 1990s and again in 2008, CARE International responded to armed conflicts that broke out in the region.  

What CARE International does in the Caucasus 

CARE International works at a cross-border and regional level to support the development of civil society and reduce poverty. In partnership with local organizations, our work focuses primarily on assisting rural households with incomes below, or at risk of falling below, the poverty line.  

CARE International strives to increase women’s roles in peacebuilding and supports dialogue across existing dividing lines in the South Caucasus. 

Our work in the South Caucasus focuses on: 

  • Addressing underlying causes of poverty  
  • Reducing vulnerability 
  • Supporting internally displaced people 
  • Strengthening women’s capacity for peacebuilding 
  • Improving conditions for sustainable development
