    Millennium Villages are designed to demonstrate how the Millennium Development Goals can be met in rural Africa over 10 years through integrated, community-led development at very low cost. Operating in 10 countries across sub-Saharan Africa (Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda), the Millennium Villages Project (MVP) works with local governments and partners to help nearly 500,000 people lift themselves out of extreme poverty through access to efficient technologies that can enhance their farm productivity, health, education, and access to markets. The MVP approach can be expanded to the district and national levels. This type of holistic, time-bound, budget-based approach has never been used before on this scale.
