VEGA was formed to be a fast and effective way to get programs into the field. Learn more about our unique LWA Mechanism
Deep Knowledge of USAID Objectives
We share USAID’s interests in local capacity development because we believe that empowering local people in emerging markets with new skills is the best way to create sustainable change. We work with local overseas partner organizations to build their own capacities to create a multiplier effect, create jobs, and develop economies.
Our members also contribute to USAID’s global initiatives including Feed the Future, Powering Africa, Scaling Innovations, and Global Climate Change. Our program area highlights encompass the best of USAID’s cross-cutting initiatives and economic growth programs. While our members all contribute to economic growth, we are also able to incorporate their other areas of expertise, such as health or education, into programs.
An Alliance Achieves Greater Success
VEGA Members often partner to meet a program’s demands, each one contributing their capabilities to the project. This is what sets VEGA apart from a single organization partner. By partnering with us, USAID gains access to new and unique combinations of member organizations working together toward the same goal. The breadth of our members’ expertise allows VEGA LWA programs to easily integrate projects across sectors and avoid stove-piped programming.
VEGA Resource Partners are private firms, universities, and non-government organizations that provide specialized skill sets or technologies to the Alliance initiatives and programs.
