Disclosure: Today’s post is sponsored by CARE, but my love for their humanitarian programs is all my own!
Traveling opens your eyes to the struggles of those around the globe. All around the world children are hungry, parents don’t have the skills necessary to provide a stable income, there is a lack of healthcare, lack of education, and violence against women and girls. These struggles are real and are part of daily life in many countries.
That’s where CARE comes in. CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty with a commitment to empowering women and girls. CARE seeks a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
CARE facilitates lasting change by:
• Strengthening capacity for self-help
• Providing economic opportunity
• Delivering relief in emergencies
• Influencing policy decisions at all levels
• Addressing discrimination in all its forms
One of the stories that I loved is how CARE taught one women the best way to feed & find proper food for her cow which has changed not only the lives of her family, but an entire village. In a small village in Bangladesh, Kallani wanted to help support her family. They had no money or clothes and no way out of their financial crisis. They had a cow, but it didn’t even provide enough milk for the family.
I find this story to be incredibly inspiring. Instead of just giving Kallani and her family money, CARE helped her provide a new way of life and stable income for her family. The money would have run out, but the knowledge will last a lifetime.
There are countless other stories on the CARE.org site to inspire you to help others. Visit the website HERE to learn more, sign up for email updates or donate to the cause. Join me in fighting poverty with CARE!
