“Our vision – as written on Facebook – is to end extreme poverty worldwide by 2025. Our mission is to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – eight globally endorsed objectives to reduce extreme poverty – in Africa by 2015. We believe that for the first time in history, our generation can end extreme poverty, hunger and preventable disease”.

“Our flagship initiative, the Millennium Villages project, empowers impoverished communities to lift themselves out of extreme poverty through community-led and integrated interventions in agriculture, education, health and infrastructure – tackling all of the problems of extreme poverty simultaneously”.

“Currently there are 80 Millennium Villages in 10 sub-Saharan African nations: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda. The Millennium Villages reach nearly 400,000 people living in rural village communities”.

“The project is already producing remarkable results”
