CEO of Trust for Democratic Education and Accountability Shahid Fiaz and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission Director John Groarke joined civil society representatives in recognizing the achievements of the Citizens’ Voice Project.

To date, the project has issued 270 grants worth $13 million to 197 local organizations. Through these grants, organizations have empowered citizens, while also strengthening state-level mechanisms to respond to citizens’ concerns. Project activities have focused on interventions in three key areas: policy advocacy and government oversight; organizational development and targeted training; and public-private linkages between and among state and non-state actors.
