The United States Agency for International Development ( USAID) is the federal government agency that leads worldwide development and humanitarian efforts to save lives, lessen poverty, enhance democratic government, and support people to move beyond reliance on aid. The mission is to promote and demonstrate democratic values abroad and advance a free, peaceful, and prosperous world.
USAID has offices around the world, in all the countries where it leads projects and helps the vulnerable population in countries such as Namibia, Laos, Libya, Barbados, Maldives, Palestine/West Bank & Gaza, Germany, Cote d'Ivoire, USA, Paraguay, Ecuador, Nicaragua, USA, Panama, Guinea, Angola, Sierra Leone, Mongolia, USA, Madagascar, Morocco, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Myanmar, Jamaica, Bolivia, Peru, Zimbabwe, Nepal, and the Philippines.
USAID has hundreds of ongoing projects and funds in the world, the main responsibilities being to promote global health, support global stability, provide humanitarian assistance, catalyze innovation and partnership and empower women and girls. USAID engaged with African nations at an early stage and has since acted in partnership to achieve common interests and ideals from security to global health to climate change to freedom and democracy to shared wealth.
USAID also plays a crucial role in collaborating with Asian nations to ensure that the development decisions they make today help them to achieve long-term success by advancing countries on their paths to consciousness. In Europe and Eurasia, USAID continues to confront massive corruption, political stagnation, severe poverty, and underdeveloped policy and regulatory systems.
