ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
Bread's 2011 Offering of Letters will continue to push Congress and the administration toward U.S. foreign assistance that is more effective in reducing poverty. We will advocate for a stronger U.S. government focus on reducing poverty, clearer accountability for how aid dollars are spent, a transformed U.S. development agency, and U.S. aid that meets the needs and wants of local people.
The 2011 Offering of Letters campaign will continue to push Congress and the administration toward U.S. foreign assistance that is more effective in reducing global poverty.
We seek changes on four fronts:
- A stronger U.S. government focus on reducing poverty.
- Clearer accountability for how U.S. aid dollars are spent and their results.
- A transformed U.S. development agency.
- U.S. aid that meets the needs and wants of local people.
