SAATLI – Today, thanks to joint efforts between Azerbaijan and the United States, residents of the village of Garajalar 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 1,200 people in the Garajalar community. The new road will provide easier access by residents to the town of Saatli, reduce time and transportation costs, increase school attendance, and improve emergency response time to the community.  

In total, EWMI has implemented 100 community projects in 88 Azerbaijani communities benefiting more than 150,000 people. Through USAID’s Socio-Economic Development Activity (SEDA) program, EWMI promotes cooperation between citizens, civil society organizations, and the government to advance socio-economic development and improve the quality of life in rural areas.
