Africa

Our Partnership

Today, Africans are the architects of their development, not just beneficiaries. Donors support their plans, they do not dictate them.?Our joint efforts reap dividends for both?African countries and the United States.

Our work to prevent?conflict and violent extremism reduces political instability that can threaten U.S. national security. And above all, our support of democracy, opportunity, and freedom from poverty and disease represents our country’s most cherished values.

Our model for development expands?and deepens?partnerships with African governments, businesses, universities, and civil society—as well as with the new generation of leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs, and innovators, who are leading the transformation of their societies. ?

While the governing principles of our work apply across the continent, our strategies are tailored to each country’s singular challenges and opportunities. We will continue?to work together to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa. We:

  • Boost?agricultural productivity through the?Feed the Future Initiative?by addressing the root causes of chronic hunger and poverty and spurring economic growth in a region with incredible resources and arable land
  • Strengthen?health systems so that countries can help their children survive, overcome the threat of malaria, give mothers the support they need to give birth safely, and turn the tide against the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the continent
  • Support?democracy, human rights, and good governance?to help governments fight corruption, expand space for civil society, help citizens choose their leadership and strengthen the trend toward democratization
  • Increase?resilience to climate shocks?by helping communities adapt to erratic rainfall and longer, harsher droughts—weather effects we know will hit Africa hardest
  • Lead?quick responses to humanitarian crises?to save lives and help prevent instability and loss, critical in a region prone to destabilizing droughts and food emergencies
