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.
All around Yemen in the evening, the electricity often goes out and the country’s teens and young adults are left idle with few productive activities or social diversions. Yemeni youth, like youth anywhere in the world, crave achievement for their own futures. Without outward signs of opportunity, big dreams about the future will fade.
Since popular uprisings in Yemen in 2011, the country has been undergoing a political transition. As part of USAID’s work in Yemen to enhance local participation and democracy, the Agency has been helping the transitional government and the Yemeni people to come together to build a government responsive to citizens’ calls for reduced corruption, access to services and increased economic opportunity.

During the 2011 political crisis in Yemen, militants seized control of the southern governorate of Abyan. Many of them set up camps in schools, particularly in the capital, Zingibar. More than 200,000 residents fled to nearby governorates as clashes between Islamic militants and security forces, government airstrikes, banditry and illegal checkpoints made Abyan a no man’s land.
Rinia e Kosovës, duke përfshirë aktivistët në forumet e partive politike, shumë më shpesh është duke përdorur mediat sociale për fushatat e tyre. Duke shkuar një hap më tutje nga mediat tradicionale, qëllimi i tyre është të rrisin ndërgjegjësimin në lidhje me çështjet duke përdorur rrjetet si Facebook, Twitter dhe forume të tjera për të krijuar faqe të komunitetit me fotografi, logo dhe pamjet vizuale.

مع تصاعد وتيرة الأزمة السورية يتصاعد باستمرار عدد الأفراد الذين أصبحوا بحاجة للمساعدات الإنسانية إلى 3.9 مليون، أي ما يعادل أكثر من 04 بالمائة من إجمالي نسبة سكان سوريا. ومع الإقبال السريع لفصل الشتاء أصبحت هذه الأرقام المذهلة تعكس ضرورة أهمية تهيئة السوريين لاستقبال الشتاء المقبل.
