This fall (2011) our daughter decided to quit her job, and spend the next year volunteering. She went to Cuzco, Peru, and did work for , and will probably continue to help them through the year, researching ways for them to collect donations from the US.
In the last month she found out she was accepted into the Kiva Fellowship program, and she just found out that she will be serving in Vera Cruz, Mexico for 4 months starting in February. The Fellows Program with Kiva is an unpaid, volunteer position, and she will need to fund her trip herself, and with the help and support of others…you can help…she has set up a site on Indiegogo, her
contribution site is: http://igg.me/p/55811 (any amount will help her out, $5, $10 or more) so please consider helping her with her work. She has just started her fundraising…so even if you can”t support her with cash, please help her spread the word about Kiva and her fellowship:
KIVA is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging
the internet and a worldwide
network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Learn more about how it works.
