USAID’s Venezuela program supports civil society, promotes human rights, strengthens democratic governance, encourages civic engagement, and expands dialogues.
We also help address the rights of citizens to be informed by independent and free media. Our assistance provides trainings, exchanges with other Latin American countries, support for research, and opportunities for Venezuelans to share ideas.
USAID programs reflect the principles enshrined in the United Nations Convention on Human Rights and Inter-American Democratic Charter, such as freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, and the rights to fair and transparent elections.
USAID’s FY3013 budget for our programs in Venezuela is $5.786 million.
Current USAID program partners include:
- Freedom House
- The International Center for Non-Profit Law
- The International Republican Institute
- The National Democratic Institute
- The Pan-American Development Foundation
