Information about our project has just been published in GeneaPress: 'Genealogists for Families' Project. GeneaPress has all the latest genealogy industry news based on press releases issued by genealogy vendors, societies, educators and other service providers.
Thomas MacEntee has also written about the project in Geneabloggers. His last sentence is very special!
We enable people without access to traditional banks (including many women) to expand their businesses, educate their children, save for the future and raise themselves out of poverty. Through Kiva, a non-profit organisation working with microfinance institutions, you choose a borrower to support with a loan of just $25. Similar loans by other lenders are combined until the required total is reached. As your money is repaid you can withdraw it or lend it to someone else. Money that is loaned over and over again does more good than a one-time donation. Join 'Genealogists for Families' - together we are making a difference!
