CARE International in the West Bank and Gaza (CARE WBG) has been active in relief and development since 1948. CARE’s programs focus on women and youth economic empowerment; women’s rights; and humanitarian response to assist the most vulnerable Palestinians in meeting their basic and long-term needs.
Putting youth and women at the center of its work and strategy, CARE WBG’s vision is that women and young Palestinians will realize their rights, reach their full life potential and contribute to a vibrant, equitable, and accountable Palestinian society. Examples of our work include: youth and women’s economic empowerment, livelihood strengthening and food security. Under the women’s empowerment initiatives, CARE WBG focuses on women’s political participation and social entrepreneurship, supporting their skills and agency development. CARE WBG has also been a leader in responding to spikes in emergencies in health providing urgent health services via mobile units or by distributing medical supplies and hygiene kits.
