Shaping a Brighter Future

"Shaping a Brighter Future"—the theme of our 2021 annual report—highlights the ultimate measure of our programs: their ability to empower thousands of individuals each year to shape a brighter future for themselves and their communities. It also speaks to our impact—past and future—as we marked our 70th year. While remaining true to our founding mission of strengthening mutual understanding and cooperation between Americans and the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa, our work has evolved to encompass much more. In a region beset by economic and political challenges, the urgency of our mission is clear. We invite you to read our report, learn about the programs we offered during 2021, and meet some of the outstanding youth with whom we were proud to work—young men and women empowered to shape a brighter future.
