Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting IMPACTblog, USAID’s new blog. We’re excited about this project and I hope you’ll find it interesting. Every day, I’m told of the fantastic projects USAID is working on throughout the world, and I wanted to create a space where we could share those stories with you in an interactive way.
USAID should seize every chance we get to be more transparent–you may have seen that we renewed this commitment just last week. We want to let people know about the work we do…our successes, our failures, and how we learn always to do better. I hope this will be a place where you can get to know the thousands of development entrepreneurs who make up USAID’s talented staff, the work of our partners, and the
beneficiaries of America’s support around the world.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts and experiences here as well. I’m traveling to Africa this week, and will be posting updates from my trip.
I hope you’ll check back with us often and let us know your thoughts. If you aren’t already following us on Twitter and Facebook, we hope you’ll sign up.
