With only a Grade 10 in hand, 23-three-year-old Rempie Jeremaia from Omuthiya in northern Namibia, just like so many other young Namibians, had limited options and was at high risk of living a life in poverty.  But, with the help of DREAMS, a program funded by the U.S. Government President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the United States Agency of International Development (USAID), she now has the opportunity to become a professional electrician. Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored and Safe (DREAMS) is an HIV prevention program for adolescent girls and young women implemented in the country’s Omuthiya district by Project HOPE Namibia.

As the South African National Department of Health (NDoH) rolled out COVID-19 vaccines, it faced numerous challenges in ensuring people knew how to get the vaccine and why. Project Last Mile was engaged by USAID to support the NDoH in strengthening communications efforts to increase awareness and uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine. As a partnership with The Coca-Cola System, Project Last Mile applies best practices in marketing from the private sector to strengthen how the public sector communicates and generates demand for health services.

USAID’s 33-year veteran in South Africa, Ms. Nomea Masihleho, has worked patriotically, professionally and compassionately to influence her country of birth’s development. Joining the U.S. Government’s humanitarian agency in 1989, Nomea promoted human rights for all, democracy, and good governance principles within community groups while South Africa was still ruled legally by apartheid. South Africa was politically turbulent at the time, with Nelson Mandela and other liberation struggle leaders still imprisoned. Those associated with activities to alter the country’s minority domination were repressed and harassed by apartheid security police at the time Nomea undertook her USAID tasks. Her brave and noble efforts enabled a significant segment of the population to learn democratic practices and voter education in a country where the majority of the citizens had been deprived of such rights all their lives.
