Governing Democratically and Justly
USAID’s programs enhance the ability of civil society leaders to engage with the media on critical civic issues, help political groups to improve communication with constituents, and strengthen the capacity of organizations addressing women’s issues, rights of the disabled, and the environment. USAID programs enabled Uzbek members of Parliament to visit with members of the U.S. Congress in Washington, D.C., to learn more about American governance, and improved the health awareness and conflict-resolution capacity of over 1,000 at-risk youth. USAID also assisted Uzbekistan’s response to human trafficking by supporting preventative awareness campaigns, building the capacity of local organizations, opening hotlines for the public, and assisting the shelter and reintegration of human trafficking survivors. USAID works to increase the capacity of local governments to provide better services and to govern more effectively and responsibly, cooperating with Uzbekistan’s traditional institutions, including mahallahs, or village communities.
