The CARE Action! Podcast is our network’s story told through global conversations about advocacy, poverty, humanitarian aid, and the people who make CARE work. It takes a network to make change happen – a network of smart, passionate people working together to raise awareness, apply political pressure, and help CARE eradicate global poverty by empowering girls and women to transform their lives. Not too wonky, not too technical – The CARE Action Podcast turns everyday citizens into powerful advocates.
