Teach a village to fish...

The Millennium Villages seek to end extreme poverty by working with the poorest of the poor, village by village throughout Africa, in partnership with governments and other committed stakeholders, providing affordable and science-based solutions to help people lift themselves out of extreme poverty. Teach a village to fish and watch development flourish.

Work is being done in more than 75 villages in ten different countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania and Uganda. Interventions include the following areas: nutrition, agriculture, gender equality, health, water, environment and infrastructure.

Watch this video for reasons why Jeffrey Sachs believes this project is a success.
