CARE Nepal works with marginalized women and adolescent girls to ensure their empowerment, wellbeing and dignity through social transformation. To achieve these goals, we work in partnerships with, for example, state agencies, donors, NGOS, civil society organizations, research institutes and the private sector and also closely collaborate with community members.
CARE started its operations in Nepal in 1978 and was one of the first international aid agencies to work in the country. Today, CARE Nepal works to address the systemic and structural causes of poverty and social injustice, such as discrimination based on gender, caste, class and ethnicity; poor governance; and vulnerability from conflict and natural disasters.
