USAID: U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Mark Green on the 2018 International Day of the Girl
In a statement recognizing the International Day of the Girl, USAID Administrator Mark Green says, “I am … very proud of USAID’s programs to serve girls worldwide to ensure they can be safe, healthy, educated, and strong to make a positive impact on their communities. … Empowering girls is a force for strengthening the global economy, and reducing gender disparities is equally critical to achieving U.S. national-security and foreign-policy objectives” (10/11).
