Malnutrition is a serious public health problem in most rural communities of Sub-Saharan Africa, contributing significantly to the morbidity and mortality of children under five years of age. This burden of malnutrition is reflected in all of the Millennium Villages Project (MVP) sites, including Sauri Millennium Village (MV) and Dertu MV in Kenya. Sauri is a rural community of about 70,000 people in Siaya County, Nyanza province in western Kenya, while Dertu is a mostly pastoral community in Garissa Country, northeastern Kenya. The MVP is an integrated rural development project jointly implemented by the Earth Institute at Columbia University and the Millennium Promise Alliance in ten countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The MVP aims to demonstrate if and how poor remote communities can achieve the Millennium Development Goals with an estimated investment of US$60 per capita per year (16 cents per day) for five to ten years. The MVP’s integrated model employs a multi-sectoral development strategy to simultaneously address the many underlying causes of extreme poverty, including food production, access to health care, education, infrastructure and business development .
