  • Sady Donbasu, an apple-producing company in eastern Ukraine, lost about $2.5 million in equipment and storage containers when a Kremlin-backed armed conflict exploded in Donetsk. Serhii Ostapets, the company owner, and his business partners fled their homes for the village of Dachne, located 70 kilometers away, but within the government-controlled area of Ukraine, taking with them what little they could.  They were determined to get back to business but lacked financial resources. 
In 2017, Sady Donbasu connected with USAID’s Agriculture and Rural Development Support  activity, which worked with the company on a co-investment plan. USAID provided $123,000 and Sady Donbasu invested $235,000. This fresh cash infusion allowed Serhii to purchase new processing and storage equipment, enabling him to finally relaunch the business. 
Mindful of the workers they had left behind in the non-government controlled area, Sady Donbasu management began hiring internally displaced persons like themselves, who had fled the conflict zone and were now trying to re-establish their lives in a new location. Today 90 percent of Sady Donbasu’s workers are internally displaced from the NGCA.

  • Gender- and sexual-based violence is a major issue in the DRC due to years of civil conflict. An 11-year-old girl is one victim who faced not only the horror of rape, but stigma in her community and a family unsure if they should support her. To help her heal and persevere, USAID has provided legal, psychosocial and medical support and has provided her family new economic opportunities to put her back in school.

  • On Oct. 24, 2017, Fanis Lisiagali, executive director of Healthcare Assistance Kenya, leads the White Ribbon Campaign march and promotes their rapid response call center hotline, which responds to violence against women in elections in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of International Foundation for Electoral System’s Kenya Electoral Assistance Program.

The campaign strategy was built on the polarization and division in Kenya led by the two political parties, which dramatically increased from August to October 2017. It was designed to showcase the voices of women and mothers that had been missing from the national conversation with the call to action for all women to play an active role by intervening in violence within their family, communities and on social media.

  • November 25th marks the start of #16Days of activism against gender based violence.

Today we share a story from Mexico, where with 34,000 registered missing persons, 2017 proved to be the most violent in Mexico’s recent history.

After being fired for missing a week of work while she was searching for her 17-year-old daughter Fátima, who had gone missing, Nidia Ivonne Muñoz Gavaldón sits before Chihuahua’s State Attorney’s Office to claim truth and justice.

USAID’s Human Rights Activity in Mexico has provided technical support to improve the investigation of gross human rights violations and supports the National Prosecutor General’s Office to review and update the Investigation Protocols for the Crime of Femicide and for Sexual Violence. It is expected that these protocols will contribute to more adequately investigate cases like those of Fátima and thousands of others who have disappeared or been murdered in the state of Chihuahua.

Happy #WorldFisheriesDay! @USAID is proud to support the fisheries sector in #Yemen by improving the capacity of fish processors to export seafood products to new markets. As part of this effort, the USAID Yemen Economic Stabilization and Success project recently held workshops for 13 fish processing factories on an internationally recognized risk-based system for managing food safety. USAID is helping Yemeni fish/seafood producers meet stringent international hygiene standards and connecting them to international buyers, creating demand for Yemeni seafood products and opportunities for Yemeni men and women working in the fisheries sector.

Foreign Service Nationals are locally-hired staff that work in USAID missions to apply their technical knowledge, program design, management, and evaluation expertise.

  • How is USAID addressing sanitation needs globally?
.
- Our Water and Development Plan reaffirms USAID's commitment to help close the sanitation gap and provide 8 million people with sustainable access to sanitation services by 2022
.
- Since 2008, USAID has helped 27.2 million people gain sanitation access.
.
- USAID goes beyond toilet construction to address weak demand and low capacity for sanitation improvements. Our comprehensive approach includes engaging the private sector to develop aspirational and affordable products, unlocking financing, and strengthening sanitation governance coupled with behavior change to encourage use and maintenance.

  • Posted @withrepost • @usaid Today is World Toilet Day! Why does this day matter so much to the global development community?

1. Two billion people lack access to basic sanitation services (a safe toilet or latrine)

2. Countries with widespread open defecation also have the highest number of deaths for children under 5, the highest levels of malnutrition and poverty, and large wealth disparities.

3. More than two-thirds of countries have established policies or plans to reach poor populations, but less than 40 percent have measures in place to finance these efforts.

  • Posted @withrepost@usaid Today is World Toilet Day! Why does this day matter so much to the global development community?

    1. Two billion people lack access to basic sanitation services (a safe toilet or latrine)

    2. Countries with widespread open defecation also have the highest number of deaths for children under 5, the highest levels of malnutrition and poverty, and large wealth disparities.

    3. More than two-thirds of countries have established policies or plans to reach poor populations, but less than 40 percent have measures in place to finance these efforts.

  • During Deputy Administrator Glick's recent trip to Bangladesh, she was able to visit Young Power in Social Action's Countering Trafficking in Persons Shelter in Bangladesh, where she heard the stories of human trafficking survivors. USAID firmly believes human trafficking needs to be fought at the community and national levels by civil society and the political and judicial systems.

  • Sady Donbasu, an apple-producing company in eastern Ukraine, lost about $2.5 million in equipment and storage containers when a Kremlin-backed armed conflict exploded in Donetsk. Serhii Ostapets, the company owner, and his business partners fled their homes for the village of Dachne, located 70 kilometers away, but within the government-controlled area of Ukraine, taking with them what little they could.  They were determined to get back to business but lacked financial resources. 
In 2017, Sady Donbasu connected with USAID’s Agriculture and Rural Development Support  activity, which worked with the company on a co-investment plan. USAID provided $123,000 and Sady Donbasu invested $235,000. This fresh cash infusion allowed Serhii to purchase new processing and storage equipment, enabling him to finally relaunch the business. 
Mindful of the workers they had left behind in the non-government controlled area, Sady Donbasu management began hiring internally displaced persons like themselves, who had fled the conflict zone and were now trying to re-establish their lives in a new location. Today 90 percent of Sady Donbasu’s workers are internally displaced from the NGCA.

  • USAID Mozambique Mission Director Dr. Jennifer Adams greets Mrs. Ema Cumaio, a breast cancer survivor. Mrs. Cumaio survived breast cancer after undergoing several recommended medical procedures at health facilities in Mozambique.

According to data from the World Health Organization, Mozambique has the second highest rate of cervical cancer in the world. In 2018, Mozambique recorded about 25,631 new cases of cancer, of which cervical and breast cancer ranked second and third.

This year’s Pink October encouraged women to take all the necessary measures for the prevention and early detection of cervical and breast cancers.

  • This Sunday marks World Prematurity Day. Every year, 15 million babies— or 1 in 10 newborns—  are born prematurely worldwide. This weekend we recognize the hardship that often comes with preterm birth, but we also celebrate the partnerships and solutions that help prevent premature birth to save small and sick newborns.

USAID works to address this unmet need through identifying high-impact, low-cost approaches and innovations like kangaroo care to improve neonatal outcomes and provide long-term health benefits to small babies. By investing in newborn health, USAID supports preterm babies to survive and thrive.
