SAATLI – Today, thanks to joint efforts between Azerbaijan and the United States, residents of the village of Hajigasimli in the district of Saatli celebrated the completed rehabilitation of a community road. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Ministry of Economy, the local Executive Committee, and municipal government representatives attended the event.  USAID and the Government of Azerbaijan co-financed the project, which was managed by the East-West Management Institute (EWMI).

The renovated 600-meter road will improve living conditions for more than 1,000 people in the Hajigasimli community. The new road will reduce the time and cost of transportation, increase school attendance, improve emergency response time to the community, and provide easier access by residents to Saatli.

In total, EWMI has implemented 99 community projects in 87 Azerbaijani communities benefiting nearly 149,000 people.  Through USAID’s Socio-Economic Development Activity (SEDA) program, EWMI promotes cooperation between citizens, civil society organizations, and government to advance socio-economic development and improve the quality of life in rural areas.
