Good morning everyone, and thank you for that kind introduction.

I want to begin by thanking the government of Hungary for all it is doing to help the United States Agency for International Development to support and nurture not only the Christian community in Northern Iraq, but also other religious minorities in that fragile remnant of what was once such a beautiful mosaic of faiths.

So one year ago at the UN General Assembly, we launched USAID's Global Accelerator to end TB. Alongside heads of state from countries where TB is most prevalent, we committed to an ambitious goal of reaching 40 million people with treatment by 2022. The Accelerator uses a new business model to get us there. One built around catalyzing local resources and private sector investments, tapping into local expertise, including the faith-based organizations that have earned unique trust in many hard to reach communities and using data-driven performance-based metrics to optimize our investments.

Today's USAID is being reshaped around several driving principles. As Beth said, we believe the purpose of traditional foreign assistance must be ending its need to exist. We believe that every individual, every family, every community has an instinctive desire to want to lead their own bright future, to be self-reliant. We believe that private enterprise is the most powerful force on earth for uplifting communities and families. Our decades of experience tells us that in many places, in most places, agriculture led growth is the clearest pathway towards self-reliance. It led us through initiatives like Feed the Future, which is built around harnessing the innovation and ingenuity of the private sector to develop market-based solutions that empower smallholder farmers. We're striving to move beyond merely grants and contracts to engage in co-design, co-creation, co-financing. In other words, true collaboration.

And so tonight, as we celebrate Thanksgiving together, we should do so wholeheartedly, but under no illusions about the magnitude of the work that lies before us. In Europe and Iraq…. and also in support of Uighur Muslims in China, of Rohingya Muslims in Burma, of Christians in Northern Nigeria, and in so many other places where faith is practiced under oppression. The truest test of our devotion to religious freedom, after all, lies in our dedication to securing it … for others. We face challenges as champions of peace and freedom for all of God’s children.
