A Global Team for Local Initiatives Partner
United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the lead U.S. Government agency that works to end extreme poverty and promote the development of resilient, democratic societies. USAID support has built GTLI infrastructure in South Omo Zone, Ethiopia, and has given GTLI the opportunity to fine tune a “Mind, Society, Behavior” approach to development.
USAID support has allowed GTLI to help some of the most marginalized people living in remote areas to help themselves. By providing improved access to clean water for 50,000 people, USAID investment has provided the foundation to springboard initiatives in WASH, education, community-based health and diversified livelihoods.
USAID supports GTLI projects through multiple funding mechanisms: directly as a prime grantee implementing Water Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) initiatives; through OFDA (Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance) as a sub-grantee of IRC implementing Emergency Rapid Response WASH programs; and as a sub-grantee of JSI through Advancing Partners & Communities.
