WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Rajiv Shah will travel to Atlanta October 2 to participate in the annual Catalyst Conference where he will talk to the faith community about USAID’s mission to end extreme poverty around the world by 2030 as well as USAID’s response to global crises like the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Administrator Shah will engage in a question and answer session with Catalyst Conference Director Tyler Reagin on the main stage at 10:15 a.m. EDT.
Faith organizations have long worked to help the vulnerable communities in many places where USAID works around the world. Collaboration with religious leaders as well as faith-based and community organizations has been integral to USAID’s work since the Agency’s founding over 50 years ago.
