U.S. Angency for International Development

Our primary focus is to promote the political and economic development of Malawi, decrease the country’s dependence on humanitarian assistance and increase its ability to make positive contributions to regional security and the global community more broadly.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is an independent agency that provides economic, development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of the foreign policy goals of the United States. The United States has a long history of extending a helping hand to those people overseas struggling to make a better life, recover from a disaster or live in a free and democratic country. It is this caring that stands as a hallmark of the United States around the world -- and shows the world our true character as a nation. 

USAID has a substantial program in Malawi focused on four areas:

  1. Health, Population, and Nutrition
  2. Sustainable Economic Growth
  3. Education
  4. Democracy and Governance
