Walmart increases CARE funding


BENTONVILLE, Ark. The Walmart Foundation announced plans to increase its women’s development partnership with CARE to $3 million, expanding its $1 million, one-year partnership initiated last year. According to Walmart, the funding will go toward providing women in Peru, Bangladesh and India education, literacy and job training.

“We are excited by the positive difference we have made in the lives of women through the work we have done in partnership with CARE and are looking forward to building on these successes to do even more,” said Eduardo Castro-Wright, vice chairman of Walmart and CARE board member. “These projects will create new jobs and advancement opportunities for women in the work place, as well as help to build and improve their confidence.”

In Bangladesh, the funding will go toward reading, writing and math programs, the company reported, while in India, funding will help create additional women owned-and-operated cashew processing institutions, and in Peru, the funding will go toward agricultural job creation.
