A facilitator at the non-formal education center in her hometown helps her out of her cocoon and supports her to develop her talent. Check out Shireen's and Diyaa’s story and learn how a USAID-backed Non-Formal Education program has resulted in over 18,000 youth earning a 10th grade equivalency certificate of completion, allowing them to pursue their dreams for success -- whether by returning to formal education or enrolling in vocational training.

NEWS: The United States is airlifting relief supplies and providing more than $26 million in additional humanitarian assistance to help people affected by the ongoing conflict in northern Ethiopia.

Humanitarian assistance is critical for saving lives, but this aid will not address the root of this crisis. An immediate end to the conflict is needed to alleviate suffering. All parties must end hostilities and pursue a negotiated cease-fire immediately.

This week Administrator Samantha Power traveled to the Dominican Republic. While there, the Administrator announced $7.9 million in new USAID assistance to support the Dominican Republic’s ongoing reform efforts. Administrator Power also met with Dominican civil society leaders, government officials, business leaders, and youth in Santo Domingo.

The Administrator’s trip demonstrates the United States’ long standing commitment to the Dominican Republic and support for President Abinader’s reform agenda. President Joe Biden has made the fight against corruption a top priority for his Administration and this continued partnership with the Dominican Republican as they work to enact a range of reforms is part of that commitment. Both of our countries benefit when we work together to increase prosperity, improve security, and strengthen democracy.

Shireen’s Circle of Support

USAID-funded Non-Formal Education centers offer 2nd chances for youth who've left formal schooling to build a better future. For some girls in Jordan, this might even mean getting to go to school for the first time in their lives. But without the support of a network of women – mothers, teachers, sisters and aunts – this change in the norms becomes possible.

Encouraged by her mother, Shireen, who has a compelling passion for art, experiences school life after the age of 18; while Diyaa, a facilitator at the non-formal education center in her hometown, helps her out of her cocoon and supports her to develop her talent. Learn more about this fruitful relationship.

Olga Nos had grown weary of hearing from other parents in her community, and from her own daughter, about the quality of the food at their local school system in Ukrainka. So, she turned to DoZorro, an anti-corruption network and public procurement monitoring portal created through USAID support, to explore how schools were acquiring food and normalize transparency in procurement processes in her town of Ukrainka:
