The gifts in this catalog are representative of what CARE does to support the fight against poverty.
To help deliver the most effective solutions to the greatest number of people, your donation will be combined with other funds and used where most needed, not necessarily to purchase or distribute the actual item shown. Gifts of Lasting Change help empower women, girls and their communities while also being a unique and meaningful gift for the gift recipient.
In communities with heavy, seasonal rains and poor roads, water makes many roads impassable for long periods of time - cutting off the route from remote communities to the nearest schools. In these communities, boats serve as school busses, safely taking kids across flood waters and providing a lifeline to education.
