CARE USA Country Director Jobs in Nigeria

At CARE, we seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live with dignity and security.


This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II.

Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty. In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs.

We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.
