In Madagascar, many of the girls drew pictures of schools. Because CARE now offers meals in school, many girls are able to attend who otherwise would be too hungry to come to class.

In honor of the 2013 #DayoftheGirl in October, our staff are gathering paintings from girls who, thanks to CARE, are getting an education. Follow #CAREart to share their journeys, and see how the girls chose to portray the impact CARE has had on their lives in their art.
