CARE started its operations in Pakistan as CARE International in Pakistan (CIP) in 2005 and is currently registered in the country with the Ministry of Interior (MoI) and Economic Affairs Division (EAD). Since our establishment, CIP has worked across all geographies in Pakistan – from the most vulnerable remote areas to developed urban cities – to support people in overcoming poverty through creating opportunities for self-reliance. Our entire staff is locally recruited and works according to the humanitarian principles of impartiality and neutrality.

We believe in supporting the Government of Pakistan’s efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

With the support of our partners, CIP has promoted equality and inclusion, particularly in the areas of Health, Education, Women’s Economic Empowerment, and Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR).

Our Approach, Mission & Vision

Our Approach

To ensure that CIP’s work has a lasting impact, we work with the government, private sector and civil society organizations who offer complementary approaches with the purpose to preserve dignity in the lives of affected populations. Essentially, we commit to working in ways that support and reinforce, not replace, existing capacities.


CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.


We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
