Working for poverty reduction and social justice: The CARE 2020 Program Strategy

In spite of global progress in reducing absolute poverty, wide gaps persist between and within countries. This program strategy sets out a vision for how CARE will fight inequality in order to overcome the injustice of poverty.

The strategy sets out what CARE will do - humanitarian action, long-term development, and multiplying impact; and how CARE will do it - strengthening gender equality and women's voice, promoting dialogue and inclusive governance, and increasing reslience. It includes specific targets for supporting, by 2020, 150 million people from the most vulnerable and excluded communities to overcome poverty and social injustice.
