Through the agreement, Switzerland will contribute $5 million dollars to USAID’s current $10 million Inclusive and Accountable Representation Activity, implemented by the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The Project will focus on developing skills and capacities of women in politics and those interested in joining the political arena as political party members, candidates and elected representatives.
