Millennium Promise



Problem

Millennium Villages are located in rural areas in sub-Saharan Africa. These villages lack access to technology and the latest scientific advances. Scientists and technical advisors can help villagers analyze and identify problems, propose innovative ideas, and can bring new science and solutions to areas that do not normally have access to technology.

The Gift

Millennium Villages are locally-led, with committees composed of community members identifying needs and priorities for their village. Every village has committees focusing on Agriculture, Education, Safe Water, Infrastructure, and Health. Your gift will allow these committees to have access to scientists from all areas of expertise. The Agriculture committee can have a soil scientist assist with the analysis of local soil and recommend agricultural inputs to increase harvest yield. The Education committee can work with a nutritionist to improve the nutritional content of the meals provided in the school feeding program. The Infrastructure committee can meet with an engineer to learn about innovative ways to meet the village’s energy needs. Your gift will provide a village with a wealth of knowledge and practical solutions to their problems!
