The School 2 School program builds upon Millennium Promise’s mission to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by empowering children and youth. The program leverages innovative technology to connect classrooms in impoverished communities in Africa to classrooms in the United States to engage in a cross-cultural learning experience that promotes global awareness and action. Schools in the Millennium Villages in Africa will benefit directly through peer-to-peer interaction with students and teachers in the United States while obtaining important computer literacy skills. Meanwhile, students and teachers in the United States gain a clear, accurate picture of life in Africa and are equipped with the experience to be advocates and activists in the campaign to eradicate extreme poverty. The 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 by coming together and forming these global partnerships.
