Acting DG Toni, Representatives of the Department of Social Services, and all workshop organizers and participants, good morning. It is a pleasure to join you for in opening this event.

Ambassador Delawie – thank you for your kind words and more importantly, your leadership and unwavering support to USAID, which enables us to achieve our development mission.  To our DCM Colleen, you are a helpful counselor and I value your advice.  To Brock, Margot, and Gretchen, thank you for your wisdom and guidance, for always having our back and a warm embrace to all my wonderful colleagues in E&E.  But I have to save my warmest embrace to Jim and am so happy that you are at my swearing-in.

On behalf of the U.S. government and Ambassador Malac, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Government of Uganda, and specifically the Ministry of Health and local government, for being here today.  I am honoured to join you in celebrating USAID’s renewal of partnerships in support for healthy outcomes in the Lango region.  Together, we are stronger in our commitment to address challenges in the Lango sub-region and put forth coordinated solutions to improve Lango’s health systems. Though we are here to celebrate this launch, I also want to express our condolences regarding the losses of esteemed leaders in Lira mentioned earlier.

On behalf of the United States Government, thank you all for joining us to launch these training efforts, which mark an important step forward in addressing gender-based violence and supporting safe learning environments. Gender-based violence remains a grave reality for countless women and youth in Tanzania and around the world, affecting victims regardless of socioeconomic status or background.

The USAID Oceans and Fisheries Partnership was designed to promote transnational collaboration to address illegal, unregulated and unsustainable fishing.  And it’s clear from the participation and commitment from everyone gathered here today that you have made that goal a reality.

On behalf of the U.S. Government, I am delighted to be here.  I would first like to say “Hongereni sana” to the Minister and his team for the commitment that has resulted in the National Chimpanzee Conservation Action Plan for Tanzania.

To me, it’s really special that, with the help of this USAID grant, we are laying the cornerstone for this new hospital this year – 2018 – an auspicious year in which we celebrate 200 years of Thai-U.S. friendship. For America’s short history, 200 years is a long, long time – making Thailand one of our oldest friends.

Let me start by thanking our hosts from the Government of Zambia, specifically the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry as well as ZAMACE by helping putting this together, as well as any other agencies that have helped make this seminar not only stimulating, but also productive and enjoyable.

The United States and India share a peer-to-peer relationship that involves close collaboration to solve development challenges. U.S. assistance in India helps advance this shared agenda by engaging a range of stakeholders to end extreme poverty and increase citizens’ access to quality health care, potable water, education and clean energy.  It's all about creating a better quality of life for people in India and in other developing countries.

Friday, June 22, 2018 - 8:45pm

We at USAID believe that education serves as a driver for development and poverty reduction. Education is transformational for individuals and societies. It creates pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies.
