Building on investments made in the MVP sites and with the aim of contributing towards the achievement of the SDGs in rural communities, Millennium Promise is partnering with KOICA to launch new projects to promote the Saemaul Undong (SMU) principles across rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa through the Sustainable Saemaul Villages Project (SSVP).
The Sustainable Saemaul Villages Project (SSVP) is a partnership between the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and Millennium Promise (MP) to integrate elements of the Saemaul Undong (SMU) rural development movement with the Millennium Villages Project (MVP) model.
Within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), MP will work together with KOICA to foster values of self-help, cooperation and diligence; provide the required support to local governments to strengthen managerial and technical capacities; implement community-based health, education, and agribusiness interventions; and foster income generation activities at the local-level in sub-Saharan Africa countries.
Project Design documents have been developed for Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Senegal and Tanzania and submitted to KOICA for funding.
