who are we ?

Our Mission

Together with our partners, we will save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice.

Our Vision

We seek communities of hope, inclusion and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all Nepali people live in dignity and safety.

Our Goal

By 2025, 2.5 million women and girls of Nepal have economic, social and political power and resilience to withstand shocks and overcome poverty and social injustice.

CARE Nepal puts women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

What do we do ?

CARE Nepal works in partnerships with state agencies, donors, NGOs, civil society organizations, research institutes, private sectors, and also closely collaborate with community members. We work across the spectrum of humanitarian action and long-term development programs to address gender-based violence, women and girls’ leadership and voice, inclusive governance, sexual reproductive health, livelihoods, food and nutrition security, disaster risk reduction, and climate change
