USAID/Egypt Mission Director Sherry F. Carlin and the mission's technical team leaders speak with AmChamEgypt about USAID's strategic partnership with Egypt.
October 3, 2019

Many of you know that USAID has a 40-year legacy of inspiring Egyptian success, but as the USAID Mission Director, it never fails to astonish me when I hear comments like, “I didn’t know USAID was still in Egypt.”  And, truth be told, I hear comments like that even here, at AmCham events.  So my goal is for you to leave here this morning with a better understanding of what we’re doing right now and what we have planned -- and to appreciate the impact we’re making, and the strength of USAID and Egypt’s strategic partnership.

You’ll hear me speak about COMMITMENT and CAPACITY.  At USAID, world-wide, we’re looking to support a country’s journey to self-reliance by leveraging its policy-level COMMITMENT to effective, inclusive, and accountable solutions to educating their people, building a skilled and healthy workforce, ensuring economic stability, and other development challenges.

This multi-donor activity works to end violence against women and girls by combating sexual harassment, promoting legislative reforms, and improving support mechanisms for survivors of violence against women.  The Safe Cities activity is strengthening the capacity of public institutions and community service organizations to provide victim services.  These include shelters; first-contact service providers; and, community-based services for rehabilitation, health, and legal support for survivors and their families.  In order to change perceptions, the activity supports advocacy efforts and uses innovative awareness-raising tools such as interactive community theater, storytelling, and art to promote a culture of zero-tolerance for violence against women, as well as a culture of responsibility towards the survivors of this abuse.  Safe Cities is also promoting the safety of women and girls in public spaces, such as the development of community-managed ‘women-friendly spaces,’ street lightning, safe markets, and safe transportation.
