Featured International SuperHuman-itarian: CARE Canada

Care Canada – The I am Powerful Campaign

MissionStatement

CARE Canada’s mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources and experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. We facilitate lasting change by:

Strengthening capacity for self-help; Influencing policy decisions at all levels;  Providing economic opportunity; Addressing discrimination in all its forms; Deliver relief in emergencies.

Description

CARE Canada was established in 1946 as part of an international network bringing emergency relief to the people of Europe. CARE’s commitment to humanitarian assistance continues to this day, and is complimented by a broad range of long term development programmes in water and community health, agroforestry and conservation, and small enterprise and income generation. Once the immediate crisis is over, CARE works with communities to re-establish stability.

I Am Powerful:  Women and girls’ empowerment

I am Powerful: these are the words that represent CARE’s belief that we all have the power to change our world. Together, we are strong. We are resilient. We can make a difference.

When a woman or girl is empowered, entire families and communities prosper. But when women and girls are not allowed to participate in the economic empowerment or dialogue of their society, half of the potential of that community is put to waste and half of its ideas are silenced.

CARE is bringing this I am Powerful message to Canadians and is challenging past notions that portray women and girls living in poverty as victims, rather than survivors. I Am Powerful is a true representation of the women and girls living in the developing world. It is about their strength, their resilience and their inherent power to fight poverty and effect positive change.

Join CARE in the fight against global poverty. Help empower millions of women and girls around the world to transform their lives and the lives of those around them.
