President Obama isn’t the only one turning 50 this year. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) was born out of a spirit of progress, innovation and a reflection of Americans’ values, character and fundamental belief in doing the right thing. Since 1961, USAID has been a quiet force, fostering a more peaceful and secure world.

You may have noticed that USAID headquarters at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC now features a 50th anniversary banner, and we wanted to take the opportunity to showcase some of the dedicated staff who are proud of the Agency’s work on behalf of the American people.
