Register for the Forum Today!
Featuring: Mr. Joel Negin, the Millennium Village Project HIV/AIDS Coordinator and Senior Project Adviser to the Access Project at Columbia University’s Earth Institute
Mr. Negin will be offering a valuable first-hand perspective of the MVP model in Kenya, including information on the status of our partner village, Marenyo. Mr. Negin is an expert in health system development, gender empowerment, and microeconomics.
The goal of this forum is to promote a deeper understanding of the Millennium Village Project, as well as offer critical insight into development approaches overall. We further envision this forum as an opportunity for students to see their areas of study actively applied to ending extreme poverty, one of the most pressing global issues of our time. Furthermore, this forum works to serve our continuing goal of encouraging collaboration between the disciplines, and across multiple universities.

In order to highlight Professor Sachs’ visit and maximize our introduction into the Duke community, we have planned an “8 Goals MVP Week” awareness campaign. For five days, MVP will be teaming up with an already established student organization to share a platform for our causes. Each group we are working with has the flexibility to present themselves and the issue they care about in a creative, exciting way.
By building an “African” hut on the Bryan Center Plaza and involving other organizations, we hope that as Duke students pass by our hut they will take a minute to explore this unusual fixture and, on at least one of the five days, learn that MVP is fighting for something they are passionate about. The multifaceted impact, we believe, is one of the greatest parts of the Millennium Development Goals and elevates the program’s potency on a college campus; everyone can find a goal that inspires them and the entire community can unite for a cause.
Thus, we envision these eight days as part of our long-term goal of creating a lasting relationship with the Duke student body and other student organizations. We are thankful for the partnership of the following organizations on their designated day:
Tuesday: the Catholic Student Center, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi
Wednesday: Generation HIV
Thursday: Environmental Alliance, Nourish International
Friday: Engineers Without Borders
Come by the hut this week on the Bryan Center plaza to purchase MVP t-shirts at $10 and sweatbands at $5!
