MP relies on partnerships to achieve its goals while remaining committed to Equality, Transparency, Results-oriented and Responsibility as core to its principle.

    Millennium Promise receives support for its operations from several public governments, non-governmental organizations, private donors, philanthropists, and foundations and non-profit partners who believe in and are committed to ending extreme poverty through integrated development at the local level.
