International Development Program 2006 Impact Review
American Institutes for Research
The American Institutes for Research's (AID's) International Development Program (IDP) seeks to enhance the capacity of developing countries to improve the quality of life through education and social development. Its work is based on a strong belief in the transformative power of education--that by providing children the opportunity to learn and receive quality instruction, by sharing proven tools and strategies with local government, and by helping communities recognize their own potential for collective action, major improvements can be realized in their health, welfare, and productivity. This booklet highlights a selection of IDP projects from around the world. The descriptions provide insight into the myriad ways in which IDP staff and local partners made very real impacts on teaching, learning, health, and the empowerment of youth and communities in 2006.
