So, the work that we do fundamentally is development and humanitarian work.  And what I'm trying to emphasize is that it is your voices -- local organizations, local leaders, young people -- that help us define what our priorities are as we figure out, in this sea of need, which issues we prioritize and where -- you know, our evaluations of the work that we do are not just done by some consultants who come from Washington; but you know, that you are the ultimate judge of whether our programs are delivering for your development needs.

We recognize, as Americans, the opportunities that these H-2B and H-2A programs can create for employers here in the U.S. And they can be a godsend, providing a viable alternative to dangerous—and even deadly—irregular migration path.

Добрый день, уважаемые дамы и господа. Для меня большая честь присутствовать сегодня в Алматинском университете энергетики и связи от имени Агентства США по международному развитию (USAID) для подписания Меморандума о взаимопонимании (МоВ) с Европейским банком реконструкции и развития (ЕБРР) о региональном партнерстве в поддержку развития стран Центральной Азии.

My own Agency’s founding was rooted in strengthening food security and nutrition throughout the hemisphere. One of USAID’s first ever programs began in 1962—Operation Niños—an initiative that, in its first three years, provided nutritious, daily meals for more than 15 million children across Latin America. And since then, our Feed the Future program is working in six countries in the hemisphere.

As the Inter-American Democratic Charter states, it is the right and responsibility of all citizens to participate in decisions relating to their own development. I would encourage all of you to expand your circle of allies to deliver progress for your citizens and know that USAID will be behind you.

When millions take the streets in Minsk, stare down the military in Khartoum, resist a coup in Yangon, or don all black in Causeway Bay, they remind us that no matter where the human heart beats, it beats for dignity. Today, just as the free world has come together in support of the people of Ukraine, we must come together to support democrats worldwide.

Today, USAID is working to provide the support that Nicaragua needs to realize that future. That support includes humanitarian assistance to help Nicaragua rebuild from natural disasters and from the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes training and support for young people poised to drive change in their own communities. And it includes support for independent media and investigative journalism and widespread civic participation.

At USAID, we will use our years of experience combating water-related challenges to address this in Ukraine, this crisis, and so many other water-related crises around the world. Since 2008, our Agency has enabled nearly 60 million people to access safe drinking water and 45 million people to access sanitation.

The cohort of MujerProspera award recipients will assist women who are already doing the work in their communities.  Even before we launch this Challenge, women across the region, it is no secret we're standing up and creating environments around them that defy traditional norms.  Their leadership will address the issues in communities that are forcing so many to risk their lives and flee north. They can help save countless lives, and they can change the fortunes of women throughout Northern and Central America who have faced violence and oppression for years.
