CARE Pakistan

CARE provides education to over 205,000 underprivileged children in 529 schools across Pakistan. CARE schools and CARE-adopted government schools achieve exceptional academic performance and comparable results to high cost, elite private education institutions in Pakistan. CARE students go on to become doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, entrepreneurs and leaders in their communities. In the spirit of "giving back" many of our teachers are also former CARE students, nurturing the rapidly expanding CARE family. Help us get to one million!
