The US is interested to partner India to help develop agriculture, health and education in Afghanistan, sources privy to a senior USAID official's discussions in New Delhi said on Friday.
J Alexander Thier, assistant to the USAID administrator for the Office of Afghanistan and Pakistan Affairs, is particularly keen on "training" Afghans in India in election management, public service and agriculture since it would be cheaper — and more relevant — than training them in the US.
USAID is already partnering Indian NGO SEWA to train Afghan women in learning various skills, which will lead to their empowerment.
