CARE: When you pave the way for a young girl to go to school…
SHE WILL ENSURE that her children go too. When you help seed a woman’s crops, she’ll have food to support not only her family, but her whole community. When you start something good today, your actions are felt for generations to come. CARE knows this because we’ve been working this way for more than 70 years. Years after we’ve finished helping a community build a water reservoir, communities are accessing clean water. Years after we’ve helped a group of women launch a savings program, the group has continued to save, invest and earn.
The poorest countries in the world need our help. Lacking the tools they need to care for their own, the rest of the world can hold hands and help them. We at ContactsforLess.ca holds Care Canada’s hand and support the work they do for the rest of the world.
