Kiva Microfunds

More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive. We do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care. By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone’s life.

Living Goods

Living Goods believes that every mother and child should have access to basic health care in their own community, no matter where they live. We seek to improve health across the developing world for good by staffing every community with a well-equipped, properly paid, and effectively managed Community Health Worker. The widespread adoption of high-impact, low-cost community health will be every bit as transformative as a new vaccine or the eradication of a disease. Millions of lives will be saved. Entire countries will be healthier and more productive. Government will have prioritized community health in its policies, plans, and budgets.
