Our work is possible because of the motivation and willingness of partners around the world to combine their efforts, merge their ideas, join forces with communities in Africa, and pursue the common goal of together ending extreme poverty.
Host Country Partnerships
Partnerships with countries hosting the Sustainable Districts Projects, Millennium Villages Project, Sustainable Villages Projects, Flagship Programs and Special Initiatives are essential to the success of the initiative. We engage host country governments at all levels—national, regional, and local—in the planning and execution of the Project, as well as the support for major infrastructure projects, elimination of health care user fees, and more. We also work with national governments to scale up the MVP approach in their economic development plans.
Currently, we partner with 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa: Chad, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.
The United Nations and Other Multilateral Partners
From partnering on major public health initiatives to purchasing crop surplus for regional food aid distribution, to providing administrative, operational, and technical support, our multilateral partners help translate our efforts into high-impact action. These partners also support the scaling up of the Millennium Villages Project to the national level.
Individual, Corporate & Foundation Partners
In partnership with Millennium Promise, individuals, corporations, and foundations leverage their expertise, resources, and technology to help in many ways. Their ingenuity and commitment is increasing crop yields to reduce hunger, and fighting back malaria to lessen the burden of disease. Creative, socially-driven minds figured out a way to turn consumption in affluent countries into school meals for primary school children through an innovative fundraising model. Manufacturers are providing water pipes and fertilizer, engineers are developing off-grid systems to provide energy to remote communities, and individuals and foundations are supporting grain warehouses, revolving funds, and in some cases whole villages.
These partners generously support Millennium Promise.
