VACANT POST - BASIC INFORMATION
Organisation: 
CARE
Location: 

Atlanta, GA, United States

At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.

This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2015, CARE worked in 95 countries and reached 65 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs. We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

CARE is an international humanitarian aid organization fighting global poverty, with a special focus on working with women and girls to bring lasting change to their communities. As a non-religious and non-political organization, CARE works with communities to help overcome poverty by supporting development projects and providing emergency relief. We believe supporting women and girls is one of the most effective ways to create sustainable outcomes in poor communities. CARE USA is a member of the CARE International confederation. We strive for a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security. 

CARE has been working in sexual, reproductive and maternal health programming for over 50 years in countries with some of the highest unmet need for family planning services, and some of highest maternal mortality rates.  Across CARE, Country Offices are working in close collaboration with local and national governments and organizations and international partners to support comprehensive programs to improve coverage, quality, and equity of health services.  CARE believes that access to quality sexual, reproductive, and maternal health is both a fundamental human right and a critical development issue and that by increasing gender equality and women's voice and promoting inclusive governance and resilience, we will help women and girls exercise those rights.
