NGO - CARE & SHARE March, 2018


Care & Share was born in 1991, when Carol Faison - an American living in Venice, Italy - visited Andhra Pradesh and decided to sponsor a child. Within weeks of her return home, friends and relatives generously matched Carol’s symbolic donation and sponsored every child living in a boarding home in Manginapudi, on the Bay of Bengal. Thanks to the power of word-of-mouth communication and the dedication of our initial donors, in the ensuing years the sponsorships grew to embrace thousands of children.

In 1997, Carol Faison and Noel Harper founded Care & Share Charitable Trust in Vijayawada, India - Registration No: 242 / 1997. Care & Share Charitable Trust is also registered with the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act for the receipt of foreign funds – FCRA No: 010260151 dated 8th December 1998. In 2000, the organization was registered in Italy as Care & Share Italia Onlus, now an officially recognized NGO by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 2004, we incorporated Care & Share USA, which later received 501(c)(3) status from the US Government. We also recently founded Care & Share EspaƱa and Care & Share Deutschland e.V.
