Testimony Before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Administrator Designate Dr. Rajiv Shah December 1, 2009
Date:12/1/2009

ship role working across programs and agencies, including PEPFAR and MCC, to ensure that we maintain a coherent strategy and focus on a results framework that demonstrates the power of our investment.

If confirmed, I look forward to leading these efforts.

USAID's motto, "From the American people," represents our effort to project the hopefulness and aspiration of the American Dream to the farthest corners of the globe.

The Agency's logo is a handshake, and by reaching out in a spirit of partnership and cooperation USAID has helped to bring a Green Revolution to Asia that saved hundreds of millions of lives, enabled oral rehydration solution to reach millions of children that might otherwise have succumbed to disease, and worked to promote stability and democracy in countries on the brink.

I remember seeing the power of that American ideal at work in a remote village in rural South India. I served as a volunteer in a poor tribal community during medical school, and I was struck by the one room schoolhouse where children, who didn't speak our language or enjoy our freedoms from hunger or disease, could look up on the wall and admire photographs of their heroes - Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and John F. Kennedy.

If confirmed, it will be my distinct honor to work with USAID's talented and proud staff to build on America's rich legacy of helping others help themselves.

I ask permission to submit for the record my extended testimony which expands on these points.

Thank you and I look forward to any questions you may have.
