Join My Village & CARE
Join My Village is a global community of individuals who take online actions to ensure women and girls in the developing world have opportunities to create and sustain a better life through education opportunities, economic development and access to health care.
In many places, girls aren’t allowed to participate in their future. Denied education and access to resources, they are trapped in a cycle of poverty. Yet given the chance to learn and create their own way, successful women and girls uplift their families and communities in a direct and lasting way. By putting girls first, Join My Village is working to eliminate poverty at its roots, for the benefit of all.
Through Join My Village, more than 300,000 people around the world have taken simple online actions or donated money to support CARE’s programs in India and Malawi. By clicking on Join My Village content on www.joinmyvillage.com, Facebook and other social media, $1 or more from the organization’s partners, including General Mills and Merck, is “unlocked” to support CARE programs. Individual donations are also matched. Since the program was launched in 2009, more than $3.3 million have supported CARE programs that have helped more than a million girls, women and their communities in India and Malawi. To learn how your company can take part, please contact: Sarah Moser firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 1945 with the creation of the CARE Package®, CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor girls and women because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole families and entire communities out of poverty. Last year CARE worked in 84 countries and reached more than 83 million people around the world. To learn more, visit www.care.org.
