The mission of Millennium Promise is to support the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals in Africa by 2015. Millennium Promise works with impoverished communities, national and local governments, and partner organizations to implement high-impact programs aimed at transforming lives on the continent and engaging donor nations, corporations and the general public in the effort. Our work is premised on the belief that, for the first time in history, our generation has the opportunity to end extreme poverty, hunger and preventable disease.
Our flagship initiative, the Millennium Villages, now operating in 80 villages across 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, takes a comprehensive approach to addressing extreme poverty. By combining the best scientific and local knowledge, Millennium Villages address all the major problems simultaneously -- hunger, disease, inadequate education, lack of safe drinking water and absence of essential infrastructure -- to assist communities on their way to self-sustainable development. The project is already producing remarkable results.
Millennium Promise also plays a leading role in mobilizing the private sector to find solutions to key problems that contribute to extreme poverty in Africa, like malaria, which kills between one and three million Africans a year. Millennium Promise is a founding partner of Malaria No More, an initiative launched at the December 2006 White House Summit on Malaria that seeks to galvanize corporations, foundations, faith-based groups, grassroots networks and the public to support a comprehensive approach to controlling the deadly, yet preventable disease.
Project Concern International (PCI), headquartered in San Diego, California, is a global health and development organization founded in 1961.

Motivated by a concern for the world's most vulnerable children, families, and communities, Project Concern International envisions a world where abundant resources are shared, communities are able to provide for the health and well being of their members, and children and families can achieve lives of hope, good health, and self-sufficiency.
Through programs that employ a holistic, community-wide approach, PCI is committed to creating strong partnerships among non-governmental organizations, government, and the private sector. PCI also leverages the inherent strengths of communities in order to address the root causes of poverty and ill health. This is all done with the goal of achieving lasting change. We reach millions of people each year with programs in Bolivia, Botswana, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Malawi, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Tanzania, South Africa, the United States, and Zambia.
