Poverty is Real. You Can Help.

The Kiva club is a club that helps to raise money for residents in developing countries. Through www.Kiva.orgmembers of our school collect money and loan it to entrepreneur that are living in poverty. Once they earn enough money, they will pay us back. The money payed back goes directly to the fund in our Kiva account. We can reuse the money there to help other entrepreneurs too. What’s great about Kiva is that we can loan money to entrepreneurs and all we have to pay is (at least) twenty – five dollars. 

Poverty flushes the vast majority of Africa and also in South America. If you want to help you could simply make an account but it would be more helpful if you donate money to us therefore we can loan money in larger quantities. Kiva can change lives and just a small amount of money can make a big difference. For your convenience, we have created a way to donate through pay pal, all you have to do is type in how much money you want to give and press the donate button.

Last year Kiva Club earned $500 for their efforts and great expectations lie ahead. After our first meeting students are already motivated in helping those less fortunate. Kids are starving and wishing… wishing for a decent life.  Donate money to Kiva and you are beginning the process to help people living in poverty have a better future!
