CARE is a global non-governmental humanitarian organization founded in 1945 after World War II to deliver life-saving emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters. We stand in solidarity with the poorest, the most deprived and vulnerable population and where possible, work with the local communities to build capacities, resilience and set the path to their sustainable socio-economic development.
In 2019, CARE worked in 100 countries supporting 1,037 poverty-fighting development and humanitarian projects reaching more than 55 Million people. A significant portion of our work focuses on Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights, Food, Nutrition Security & Livelihood (FNSL), and Climate Change Resilience; Women and Girls Economic Empowerment, Protection and Gender Equality, increasing access to clean Water and Sanitation, quality Health services, Education and Small-business support.
As a Humanitarian agency, CARE is actively providing relief assistance to a number of on-going crisis in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Middle East, including neighboring countries affected by the Lake Chad Basin crisis: Niger, Chad and Cameroon, with well-established capacities since 1975.
CARE has received approval from the Ministry of Budget and National Planning to implement humanitarian and relief assistance to affected populations in Nigeria and has a Head Office in Abuja with dedicated Field Offices in Maiduguri and Gashua supporting response actions in both Borno and Yobe States (Nguru, Yunusari and Yusufari LGAs). CARE in Nigeria currently implements Food Nutrition Security and Livelihood activities in partnership with the World Food Program, Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights activities in partnership with the UNFPA and a Private Donor, Gender-based Violence and Protection activities in partnership with ECHO.

CARE is implementing the “Ingantaccen Al’umma” (G2L initiative - Shifting power: from global humanitarian commitments to local action) project. The project aims to strengthen and bridge capacity gaps of the national partner on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Gender Based Violence and community engagement services in three Local Government Areas of Borno State where CARE’s SAFPAC Initiative had supported local health systems and communities to increase women’s and girls’ utilization of high-quality Family Planning and Clinical Abortion Care. G2L seeks to further increase access through interactive community education and sensitization against the socio-cultural barriers of Gender and Sexual Reproductive Health , increasing support and demand for GBV/SRH prevention and uptake of services, and empowering women, men, girls and boys and community leaders to make informed decisions related to GBV prevention and Reproductive Health and Rights.
