At CARE, we’ve found that the poorest
parts of the world are, invariably, places
where women are still marginalized and
not allowed a significant role.
That’s why CARE today has embarked on
a mission of global women’s empowerment.
To educate girls, and provide
opportunities that will unleash the
power women have to bring change to
But often, we have to be creative in
how we do that. Loki, who lives in a
remote Ethiopian village, has big
dreams. But she also has to tend her
family’s herd of cattle and goats. If
not, her family will suffer. She often
walks 20 miles a day in search of water
and grasslands. So rather than bring
Loki to school, we bring school to Loki.
We’re establishing schoolrooms in
nomadic villages that offer flexible
hours, and move as the village moves.
Someday soon, girls like Loki will do
remarkable things in Ethiopia. We’ll
keep finding ways to open the doors.
We’re trying to create a world where
every person has the opportunity to
realize their potential. Because, in the
end, that’s the key to truly ending
injustice and poverty.
