Passion for improving livelihoods, enabling smallholders, strengthening agricultural supply chains, and alleviating poverty are key forces driving the global challenges taken on by the Cargill and CARE Rural Development Initiative (RDI). Launched in October 2008, this partnership between CARE and Cargill leverages their respective strengths--working with business units and local employees within important supply chains. The program has benefited more than 100,000 people in India, Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire, Egypt, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Brazil.
