Life changing micro-loans

Nozigul is a mother of four in Tajikistan. In 2018, she began receiving loans from Furuz Microcredit Deposit Organization to start a cotton farming business. With these loans, she is able to purchase seeds, fertilizers, rent a tractor, and hire seasonal workers for harvesting. All members of her family help Nozigul in her work. Furuz has provided over 65,000 loans to 25,000 Tajiks, moving many out of poverty to form a new middle class.

Safe Kitchens for special diets

More than one year has passed since the 2023 Turkey-Syria earthquakes and many families are still living in temporary shelters. People in need of special diets may not be able to safely eat the food that is distributed. Our partner in Turkey, Ilk Umut Dernegi, has opened two container kitchens to provide meals to those with medical conditions like celiac disease, and others requiring special diets.

How does aid get there?

Have you ever wondered how aid gets to a disaster? Roads are often damaged or missing! An effective response depends on the transport of critical supplies and workers to a disaster location, and that makes reliable vehicles very important. Help a Millennium partner in Morocco purchase a truck for shelter building projects that continue, post-earthquake.

Giving the gift of life: newborn resuscitation

Resuscitation training is critical for physicians and nurses in neonatal units, as well as for teams working in the delivery rooms. A simulation training program has begun to meet this urgent need at a Mongolian hospital, with a proposal to expand to other specialists working with mothers and newborns. Your gift will help to purchase the medical equipment needed for training.

Rebuilding lives in Morocco

The purchasing of donkeys has begun!

Months after the devastating earthquake, survivors in these mountain villages are doing the slow work of rebuilding.

Millennium Partners have started a project to replace lost animals that were crucial to a family's transportation or business.

Morocco Earthquake Response - September 2023

Our Origins

In 1991, Kurds began to return back to the northern region of Iraq following the repressed rebellion after the gulf war. That same year, William (Bill) Koops moved to Iraq to work with the Kurds who were in refugee camps under UN and Allied protection. In 1997, seven thousand Kurds were evacuated to the US and many came to Houston. Koops returned to Houston at that time to help them settle into a new country.

It was then that Bill met James Clark, a lawyer specializing in international law and finance. The two built a relationship and together they co-founded an organization that enables field workers to provide long-term development assistance to the poor. Bill Koops still serves as President and James Clark as COO and Chairman, and since its creation in 1998, Millennium has worked in over 40 countries.
