"The United States is strongly committed to empowering women in developing communities from the ground up. We work to ensure that our assistance goes directly to the kinds of women I meet with on my trips abroad: the mothers struggling to feed their families, educate their kids, and create a future for their families and their communities. The women pushing through barriers to have equal political representation. The entrepreneurs, pioneers, goal setters, and other extraordinary women changing the face of society. Across Africa, the U.S. is helping to build the capacity of regional organizations and the African Union to support women’s political participation."
- Ambassador Nikki Haley
