Kiva Lending Team: Safe Girls Team
We loan because...
By empowering girls and women in the fight for women's rights, poverty reduction, education and health promotion, we are helping to create a fairer and better world for everyone.
"The most fulfilled people are the ones who get up every morning and stand for something larger than themselves. They are the people who care about others, who will extend a helping hand to someone in need or will speak up about an injustice when they see it." ~~~ Wilma Mankiller, first female Tribal Chief of the Cherokee Nation (Native Americans)
This team supports the work of Kiva, improving the lives of people around the world who have limited financial means, and who would not otherwise have the means to improve their
lives, those of their families, and their communities. Our team members loan for different activities, mainly to women, especially to those who are widowed, single or single parents, supporting a family, a refugee, or caring for orphans, but also to men.
We also raise awareness of the issues of violence against women and girls, their education, maternal health and human rights.
