African Millennium Foundation Advocacy

Through our mission of extending grants and services to women lead grassroots organizations in Africa as a means of promoting economic, social and human development, the African Millennium Foundation has answered the development challenge of the September 2000 United Nations Millennium Summit.

Attended by 147 heads of state, the Summit set out a clear agenda of reducing the world's poverty rate in half by 2015 – and to end these conditions altogether within the coming years. The Summit lead to the creation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
