Meet Mirgul, she has been teaching children for more than 12 years in Southern Kyrgyzstan. Like many other teachers across her country, she has to teach using methods and materials dating back to the Soviet Union, which are now outdated and inadequate for children in today’s independent Kyrgyz Republic. Through USAID’s Time to Read project, Mirgul is able to develop better learning approaches, and learn to teach hundreds of fun, interactive, and effective activities for the classroom.

"It really is an exciting thing to turn back on the water. It gives communities some sense of normalcy, that things are coming back to life." Inside Syria today, 13 million people lack basic provisions, including water, food, and electricity. In addition, more than 5.8 million internally displaced people fled their homes and sought refuge in neighboring communities or regions. Read how USAID, along with local partners, have turned the water back on in Northeast Syria, providing clean drinking water to more than 300,000 people. https://medium.com/usaid-global-waters/turning-on-the-water-usaid-collaborates-with-local-partners-to-restore-water-access-to-northeast-8801a2ddd2f5 Photo: USAID/SES II
