About CARE International in Pakistan

CARE began its operations in 2005 in Pakistan, as a multi-mandate organization, working for both longer-term development opportunities as well as supporting the most vulnerable communities in times of humanitarian crises. CARE is duly registered with the Ministry of Interior, Government of Pakistan and the Economic Affairs Division. Since its establishment, CIP has worked across all parts of the country- from the hardest to reach areas to urban metropolises. CARE works closely with private sector partners, government and local communities to promote women’s economic empowerment with a particular focus on entrepreneurship development, financial inclusion, strengthening inclusive value chains, and increasing employability skills. Our approach goes beyond a singular focus on income generation, to holistically promoting empowerment by focusing on strengthening women and girls’ education, build their confidence, negotiation skills and foster an enabling environment that is free from GBV in the world of work (especially sexual harassment and other gender biases).
