The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) created a graphic to illustrate how investing in women translates into long term gains for women, their families and their communities around the globe. Research shows that elevating women and girls not only builds their individual self-worth, but ultimately contributes to a country’s successful development. For 50 years, USAID has been investing in women in developing countries around the world, by providing education opportunities, job training and healthcare, among other essential services. USAID is constantly bringing new innovative ideas to the field that provide women with opportunities that will ultimately lead to a more sustainable future. Why Invest in Women?
