REGIONAL SAFEGUARDING ADVISOR At CARE USA


CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in more than 90 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from clean water to access to education; from microfinance to ensuring that everyone has nutritious food; from agriculture and climate change to disaster response. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because they have proven to be the best hope for creating lasting change in the world. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for over 70 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and fight with CARE.

We have a responsibility to keep children and vulnerable adults safe, and we are committed to protecting them in all our activities. This role has been created to ensure that we continue to protect people from sexual harassment exploitation and abuse, and that this is managed in a professional, sensitive, coordinated, accountable and urgent way, in line with best practices within CARE and the sector.
