Abstract: 

For several decades, international development has focused on to helping rural communities in Africa attain economic development. The Millennium Villages Promise is a community-based Development strategy designed to facilitate the attainment of Millennium Development Goals in target sectors of education, agriculture, health, and infrastructure. The aim of this study was on how the relationship between exogenous and internal organizations had impacted community networks and how interventions would be sustained in Sauri. Findings included new structures and reinforced collective action through agricultural interventions. However, the absence of a clear exit strategy puts the sustainability of the programs into question.
