Genealogists For Families Project

I’ve just joined the Genealogists For Families project, here are the details of what it’s all about;

Genealogists worldwide, and their friends and relatives, are working as a team to help families in low income areas. Our motto is, We care about families (past, present and future). Within six weeks the project had sixty members from eight countries helping eighty-eight small family businesses all over the globe – and the number increases daily.

Through Kiva, a nonprofit organisation, we make $25 loans that enable borrowers to expand their businesses, support their families and raise themselves out of poverty. When the loan is repaid, the lender can withdraw the money or lend it again.

To find out about team activities, follow this blog or subscribe to posts and comments. Join ‘Genealogists for Families’ and make a difference by helping families now and in the future!

It was fun looking through the different lending opportunities through Kiva. I chose to help a textile worker because I’m one also and I love textiles from different countries!!  This link goes to my Kiva page.
