CARE International worked in Vietnam from 1954 to 1975 to address immediate needs, by supporting local food supply, health care and education.
CARE returned to Vietnam in 1989 and has since worked in almost all of Vietnam’s 64 provinces and cities, providing more than 300 development projects. These projects have supported agricultural and rural development, livelihood enhancement, community-based health care, reproductive health, HIV/AIDS prevention, disaster risk reduction, climate change response, emergency relief and rehabilitation, water and sanitation infrastructure, and the advancement of gender equality.
Today, CARE International in Vietnam continues to deliver humanitarian and emergency assistance in times of crisis, but primarily focuses on ensuring long-term positive change for marginalised groups, especially ethnic minority women in remote mountainous areas and vulnerable women in urban areas, by tackling the underlying causes of poverty, vulnerability, and social injustice.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security.
CARE will be a global force and partner of choice within a worldwide movement dedicated to ending poverty. We will be known everywhere for our unshakable commitment to the dignity of people.
Humanitarian action and emergency response, with special attention to the needs of women and the marginalised.
Using learning and developing partnerships, to scale up proven methods to alleviate poverty.
Sourcing innovative solutions and using sustainable development tools to reduce risk and build resilience.
CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.
We put women and girls in the centre because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.
We are clear-eyed about the challenges and opportunities facing humanity; we make difficult decisions and take calculated risks to respond to these knowing we have a healthy and productive workforce in a safe and fun work environment.
We are all leaders, thinking big and taking urgent action to improve the world; we challenge each other, have the confidence to try new things, and we move fast.
We know we must be the change we want to see, so we treat colleagues, partners and the public with respect, valuing and promoting different opinions and perspectives based on our diverse life experiences, working together so we all feel safe and powerful.
We know humanity’s best chance for overcoming poverty and creating a world of hope, tolerance and social justice lies in equality; we advance equality in all our work and in our dealings with all people, especially gender equality. It all starts with equal.
