Celebrating 40 Years @NDI
Celebrating 40 Years @NDI

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of NDI's founding. 

NDI promoted democratic reform in the Philippines and Chile in the 1980s; in Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall; and across Africa, Asia and Latin America in the 1990s following the end of the Cold War. Throughout the 2000s, we have promoted the political leadership of women, youth and marginalized communities, information integrity, open government and environmental resilience. 

NDI has worked in 156 countries and territories during our history and today, we have programming in over seventy countries. We are privileged to work with exceptional individuals whose tireless efforts on behalf of human dignity in their countries – and beyond – seek to make the world more just, secure and prosperous.

Our 40th Anniversary is a time to reflect on lessons from the past that will inform our future. It is a time to celebrate the work of our partners and, most importantly, to honor our amazing staff. 

Help us continue to ensure that democracy thrives in every corner of the world. Stay informed (newsletter sign up) and support NDI's work on behalf of democracy defenders and freedom-loving people all over the globe.
