November 2021 marks the 60th anniversary of the creation of USAID. USAID’s Bureau for Africa (USAID/AFR) is designing a variety of communications products for the 60th anniversary that will illustrate USAID’s assistance and its impact in sub-Saharan Africa. These products will tie into the Agency’s messaging priorities for the 60th anniversary, and will strengthen and expand AFR’s engagement with various US audiences. AFR’s goal is to showcase activities currently being led by Africans across the continent with USAID support, as well as historical examples from previous decades of USAID-supported initiatives.
One product that is under development is an update to the 1996 USAID Making a Difference in Africa report. The original report illustrates the importance of USAID’s work in the Africa region over a span of 25 years - between 1970 and 1995. The new report will cover 1996 to the present day, beginning with an overview of development challenges in Sub-Saharan Africa and U.S. priorities. It will present examples of USAID’s progress in various sectors, followed by highlights of program management strategies the Agency has used to implement assistance. Finally, the report will conclude with a discussion about the issues that have the potential to change the course of development and humanitarian assistance in the Africa region for years to come.
The new report will be appealing and engaging to today’s reader. It will be succinct, integrate multimedia, and provide access to interactive resources for those seeking more data. When finished, the report will live on USAID’s website, and also be available in PDF version to print out and distribute when appropriate.
