What are your values?
For the first time in almost 50 years, the U.S. government is seriously looking to reform our system of foreign assistance. It’s easy to do your part to help ensure that our country’s global development strategy is focused on alleviating poverty and hunger, increasing local capacity and control, and promoting human rights.
Please take a moment to sign the petition and, if you’d like, share your own thoughts on what values you think should be incorporated into the President’s vision for international development.
Dear President Obama,
We are excited by our government’s desire to improve our foreign assistance program and hope it will deliver tangible benefits to those most in need. As you develop a comprehensive strategy for international development, we hope that your new policies will reflect the values of people like us who believe in helping local communities to help themselves and focusing on alleviating poverty and hunger.
