From the American People
Letter from the Director
Since 1972, USAID/East Africa (previously known as REDSO) has served as one of USAID’s regional platforms in the field. Our team carries out three mandates: managing multi-country and cross-border programs that respond to regional challenges; administering USAID’s programs in Djibouti, Somalia, Burundi and the Central African Republic; and providing essential services to USAID missions. Working together with governments in the region and our implementing partners, USAID helps to improve the quality of life for the people of eastern and central Africa.
This website has been developed to communicate with a wide variety of visitors interested in international development. It provides a brief look at USAID’s programs and activities, presenting updated news and success stories. I welcome your interest and encourage you to contact us with any questions or comments.
