Oxfam Welcomes Gayle Smith at USAID


In reaction to today’s confirmation of Gayle Smith as Administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Oxfam America’s president, Raymond C. Offenheiser, made the following statement:

“Oxfam America wholeheartedly welcomes Gayle Smith as USAID Administrator. Ms. Smith is an unequivocal champion of those facing poverty and injustice.

“We look forward to working with Ms. Smith to continue the modernization efforts afoot at USAID.  Smith’s packed agenda will include locking in reform efforts to put developing countries in the lead of their own development, delivering and communicating tangible results on key US priorities like Feed the Future and Power Africa, and getting ahead of recurrent humanitarian crisis by advancing USAID’s effort to promote resilience and emergency preparedness.

“Ms. Smith will bring a powerful voice, vision and leadership to the agency, ensuring strong American leadership in fighting poverty around the world.”
