The mission of Millennium Promise is to advance sustainable development in communities across Sub-Saharan Africa using innovative solutions and scalable systems aimed at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including the end of extreme poverty.
From 2005-15, Millennium Promise provided the operational platform and resource mobilization for the Millennium Villages Project which deployed a holistic, science-based approach to accelerate progress on the Millennium Development Goals for more than 500,000 people across sub-Saharan Africa.
Today we build on this work to implement the SDGs at the national level through several initiatives, including Connect To Learn, the Lead Farmer Program, the One Million Community Health Workers Campaign, and Sustainable Villages Program.
