Transforming Lives

Every day, all over the world, USAID brings peace to those who endure violence, health to those who struggle with sickness, and prosperity to those who live in poverty. It is these individuals — these uncounted thousands of lives — that are the true measure of USAID’s successes and the true face of USAID's programs.

Qytetaria aktive qëndron në vetë bërthamën e demokracisë së shëndoshë. Me ndihmën e USAID-it, komunat janë duke u angazhuar drejtpërdrejt me qytetarët në procesin e vendim-marrjes.
