A few weeks ago we launched a new department of our Agency, a project jointly funded by USAID and the Polish government. The new office will assist local public authorities (like mayor’s offices and district councils) with tasks like project writing.
It was quite the event, attracting all the big political players in the town, and included the participation of the U.S. Ambassador to Moldova and the Director of USAID Moldova. The ambassador’s black diplomatic sedan with its American flags on either end of the hood was parked outside our building when I got to work that morning. I managed to snap a few shots of the ribbon cutting through the crowd.
