Promoting Religious Freedom Training

Speeches Shim

Religious freedom is one of our core values, and has critical links with USAID’s development efforts and assistance. USAID is excited to announce the new online training, "Promoting Religious Freedom," designed to give all our staff the information and tools to understand and advance religious freedom in our work. This 45- to 60-minute, self-paced module defines international religious freedom, outlines common restrictions and violations on freedom of worship, and highlights other human rights deeply connected and necessary to support religious freedom.  It also explains relevant U.S. Government policies, laws, and institutions that support our efforts to promote religious freedom.  This training reinforces the high priority USAID places on promoting religious freedom, and will allow USAID to meet the requirement that all Foreign Service Officers (FSOs) receive training on religious freedom, pursuant to Public Law 114-281, “The Frank R. Wolf International Religious Freedom Act.
