On Father's Day, we salute men and recognize their essential role in families - in finance, health, education and much more.
At the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), we believe that gender equality and women’s empowerment are at the core of development. On Sunday, as we celebrate fathers everywhere, let us also remember that men’s informed and active participation is crucial to this effort.
In this spirit, we wish to send special thanks to the many men who are helping women and girls gain equal footing with men and boys. Your dedicated service is vital to better health and improved lives for everyone. Only together can we unlock full human potential on a transformational scale.
