Genealogists For Families Dinner

It was great to meet all the Genealogists for Families members tonight!!  We had a lovely dinner with much laughter and conversation.

Genealogists For Families  motto is, We care about families (past, present and future). Genealogists worldwide (and their non-genealogist relatives and friends) are working as a team to help less fortunate families.

Through Kiva, a non-profit organisation working with microfinance institutions, we make $25 loans (not handouts) that enable borrowers without access to traditional banks (including many women) to expand their business, support and educate their family, save for the future and raise themselves out of poverty. When the loan is repaid we can withdraw the money or lend it again. By repeatedly lending the same $25, we make a difference to many lives.
