Why should I choose CARE?

There are thousands of children’s charities in the world and a substantial number of them have their roots in the UK. Faced with multiple options, how does the donor decide which one is the right one to donate to? There are a number of simple but practical questions one needs to ask. Find out for yourself, how CARE ticks all the right boxes:

Can I relate to the charity and the cause it supports?

CARE supports a cause everyone can understand and relate to. Its objective is simple. Bettering the lives of underprivileged children, through education.

Does the charity maintain transparency about its work at all stages?

We encourage donors to participate in our programs and visit our project sites for a first-hand experience of the work that is being done. There is constant updating of project information on our website and all of us are accountable to the donors. We are happy to keep you informed and involved at every stage of our work. Ours is an open door policy with we keep up a constant stream of communication and feedback with our donors.

Are the people involved, truly dedicated to the cause?

CARE was founded and is managed by professional volunteers who give their time freely without any remuneration, fees or even expenses. There are no administration costs deducted, no travel or accommodation costs reimbursed…we are all in it of our own free will and pay for expenses on our own. We form partnerships with well-established local charities and communities who are also stakeholders in our projects.

Does CARE have A real understanding of the problems its children face, and have the tools to offer practical help and support?

At CARE, we do not believe in giving charity handouts, but in providing the tools to fight poverty. To us all children are special irrespective of race, colour, religion or creed. We are 100% committed to the children in our care for their total welfare including their health. We understand that it is not enough to feed them for a day or clothe them for a month. They need to be taught a trade or skill so they can lead financially independent lives, as they grow older. We get involved with them, their families their lives and their problems at a grassroots level, to offer the best possible solutions to their individual problems.
