Initially focusing on providing emergency disaster relief and nutrition, over the years we moved towards amore complex and forward-thinking program of development and resilience.
Placing women and girls at the center of our work enables us to tackle the root causes of poverty and inequity among Bangladesh’s rural and urban populations. Working with over 29 national NGOs, 17 international NGOs and 23 civil society platforms partners and reaching millions of beneficiaries, CARE Bangladesh creates lasting change by strengthening marginalized, excluded and extremely poor rural communities. We aim to build their resilience to shocks and amplify their voices to influence governance,public policy, and development practices.
Through our partners, we implement programs that encompass strengthening livelihoods and dignified work, food and nutrition security, inclusive governance, sexual and reproductive health, ending violence against women and child marriage, pro-poor market engagement, disaster and climate risk reduction and emergency response.
All our activities are underpinned by a right-based approach, and the empowerment of women and girls.
