    CARE Kenya developed an overarching goal that guides its operations:

     

    ?Women and girls in Kenya will be self-reliant, have a sustainable, high quality of life and fully realize their rights?

     

    In order to achieve lasting change for project participants, CARE intends to address the underlying causes of poverty, not simply symptoms of poverty. CARE therefore intervenes in three critical areas:

     

    (i) Human Conditions ? ensuring that women and girls have equitable access to and control of productive assets, basic services, opportunities and benefits.

     

    (ii) Social Positions ? ensuring that socio-cultural practices and processes promote women and girls? well-being and equality.

     

    (iii) Responsive Institutions ? ensuring that institutions at local and national level, have policies and practices in place that enhance equitable development and resilience of women and girls.

     

    CARE Kenya agreed on five programmatic themes that it would implement in the five year period to achieve its goal , including Livelihoods , Financial Inclusion , Health, HIV and AIDS Sector , Refugee Assistance Program and Humanitarian Assistance and Emergency

    CARE International in Kenya (CIK) is a development and humanitarian organization with a goal to reduce poverty at the household level, and to provide relief in emergencies.

    CARE commenced its humanitarian programme in Kenya in 1968. Since then we have built a substantial development and humanitarian programme, targeting around 2 million people in Kenya per year.

    We currently carry out major programmes in refugee assistance, health, water and sanitation, financial inclusion, adaptation to climate change, disaster risk reduction, agricultural value chains and humanitarian/emergency response with an average annual budget of approximately US$ 35 million.  CARE is a lead partner of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and World Food Programme (WFP), for water & hygiene, food distribution, and formal education in the refugee camps in Dadaab, near the Kenya-Somalia border. As of 30th November 2014, the refugee  population in Dadaab was 357,345 refugees.

    Our main office is in Nairobi, and our main focus areas are western Kenya, Nairobi informal settlements and northern Kenya arid and semi arid lands. We also have projects in central and rift valley counties around financial inclusion and agricultural value chains.  We currently work directly in 21 Kenyan counties through our programming, powered by the talents of 450 staff nation-wide.

     

    CARE International traces its roots back to 1945, when 22 American organizations combined forces to rush?emergency food rations in the form of 'CARE Packages' to the starving survivors of World War II in Europe. Thousands of Americans, including United States President Harry S. Truman, contributed to the effort. On May 11, 1946, the first 20,000 packages reached the battered port of Le Havre, France.

    Some 100 million more CARE Packages reached people in need during the next two decades, first in Europe and later in Asia and other parts of the developing world.

    CARE International is a?global confederation?of 13 National Members and one Affiliate Member with the common goal of fighting global poverty. Each CARE Member is an autonomous non?governmental organization and implements program, advocacy, fundraising and communications activities in its own country and in developing countries where CARE has programs.. The oldest members are CARE USA and CARE Canada (of which CARE Kenya is a part of), which were established in 1945 and 1946 respectively. The other ?member countries are Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, the United Kingdom, India and Thailand. CARE Peru is an Affiliate Member, and along with India and Thailand, strengthens the diversity of CARE's governance.

    The organization has always been known as "CARE" but the meaning behind the letters has changed as its scope has broadened. When it was founded in 1945, CARE stood for "Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe." Today, with work in 87 countries around the world, CARE stands for "Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere, Inc."
