As we explore beginnings this month we wanted to talk about an orgnaization that helps gie people new beginnings. This organization is Kiva. Kiva is “a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.”
Just like Searching Sophia’s Pockets, Kiva uses the connecting powers of the internet to create opportunities for new beginnings worldwide. Since its own beginnings in 2005 Kiva has helped people in over 70 countries.
We envision a world where all people – even in the most remote areas of the globe – hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others.
Here are a few great ways you can help Kiva right now:
- Make a loan!
- Purchase a Kiva card
- Share Kiva with your communities
- Volunteer with Kiva
- Learn more about microfinance and how Kiva helps create new beginnings
Kiva is a great way to help people around the world and a excellent connection for people in our own communities who may need some money this year to make a new beginning.
