“…We are at an exciting time in history: We have the means and opportunity to eliminate extreme hunger. However, this possibility requires not only public and private resources but also political will. … That’s why this May, InterAction and USAID announced a first-of-its-kind agreement aimed at maximizing the U.S. government’s and U.S. NGOs’ ability to fight extreme hunger and malnutrition. This new partnership redefines and explores innovative ways for USAID and U.S. NGOs to work together. … To achieve our hunger and nutrition goals it will take everyone — governments, corporations, civil society organizations, universities, think tanks, and individuals — working together, with shared goals and sustained efforts…” (11/19).
