CARE Nepal has been supporting the most vulnerable communities of Nepal to fight poverty and social injustice while providing capacity to empower communities both in policy and economic aspects over the last four decades of its establishment in Nepal. It is one of the key development actors in Nepal providing aid, relief and response in emergencies caused by various scales of natural disasters such as storm, flood and earthquake. By 2020, CARE Nepal aims to support nearly four million people from the most poor, vulnerable and excluded communities.
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization dedicated to saving lives and fighting global poverty. Around the world, we work alongside a broad network of partners and allies to help rebuild and improve the lives of the most disadvantaged. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.

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.
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.
