Guests from the USAID Washington office

We were thrilled to host our partners from the Washington and Armenian offices of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

On May 15, during the regular community forum organized as part of the “CapSLoc: Capacities for Sustained Locally-Led Development” project, we welcomed:

  • Colleen Brady, Lead POC from the Local Works Washington team for Armenia
  • Van Credle, Knowledge Management Lead, USAID Bureau for Inclusive Growth, Partnerships, and Innovation (IPI) | Local, Faith, and Transformative Partnerships Hub (LFT)
  • Arthur Drampyan, Project Management/Decentralization Program Specialist, Democracy and Governance Office


During their visit, we had meaningful discussions about the importance of community development programs and their impact. Our guests also had the chance to interact with members of the Community Leaders Team in Akhuryan.

It was an inspiring and productive day, and we’re excited about the continued collaboration and progress!
