Some of the positive changes include improvements in people’s economic situations; better access to food, health, water, or other services; a greater sense of power; and progress in gender equality, the statement said.



In 2021, nearly 80 percent of the reported projects showed how they were contributing to improving equality for the women and girls CARE works with.

The programs come as part of CARE’s 2030 vision to support 200 million people to overcome poverty and social injustice, according to the statement.

The 30 indicators CARE uses to measure the impact its programs have align closely to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Last year, CARE contributed to 12 out of the 17 SDGs, the statement said.
