Cardno provides significant consulting services to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
We share the Agency’s commitment to “promoting broad-scale human progress…while expanding stable, free societies, creating markets and trade partners for the United States, and fostering good will abroad”.
Our work with USAID spans governance, access to finance and sustainable health systems, in projects such as the Production, Finance and Technology (PROFIT) Project in Zambia. Cardno helped pioneer the first cell phone-based rural payments system, giving households access to cross-country payments, savings products and agricultural information.
We are also involved with the Maternal and Child Health Sustainable Technical Assistance and Research (MCH-STAR) Project in India, building the capacity of institutions to provide leadership and critical inputs to public and private programs in maternal and child health through technical assistance, policy analyses, advocacy and research.
Cardno provided access to income-generating activities for 2 million orphans and families affected by AIDS in Mozambique, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania, in the Community-based Orphan Care Protecton and Empowerment Project for Children Affected by AIDS program.
We also worked with banks and other institutions to strengthen their capacity to provide services to various enterprises, develop new products and explore new markets, through the Financial Sector Deepening Project in Armenia.
