Most U.S.-Afghan joint initiatives to develop cultural ties, educational training, or civil infrastructure would not have been possible without the support of the U.S. Agency for International Development. Its programs resulted in local
professionals and specialized workers whose skills benefited future generations. Ultimately, this organization was more than just a funding body – it was a symbol of hope for countless Afghans.
