This week at the Clinton Global Initiative, the poverty-fighting group CARE and its partners announced four unique commitments that help connect women and girls in the U.S. to women and girls in poor countries. CARE's partners include Gap Inc, General Mills, Girl Scouts of the USA, Seventeen Magazine, The Documentary Group and UPS.
"CARE's work around the world could not be achieved without the support of our corporate partners. Through their commitment, in the form of funding, consumer and employee engagement and expertise-sharing, we're creating programs that bring sustainable change to the world's poorest communities," says Radha Muthiah, CARE's vice president for Strategic Partnerships and Alliances. "Working together, we will make a positive difference in the lives of women and girls."
Commitment highlights from the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative include:
In nearly 70 countries, 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. Get involved at www.care.org.
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place 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. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.
