Kiva Lending Team: Alight - formerly American Refugee Committee
We loan because...
We believe that there is simple human justice in the chance to build a life. We believe in an abundant world full of amazing people who want to help. We believe in doing a better thing.
Beginning on June 21st, we will have a new name. We’ll be called Alight.
Recently, we were honored as a Most Innovative Company by Fast Company magazine for listening to our customers. One of the things we learned – in millions of conversations – is that ‘refugee’ is not a name they want.
These people are abundant, full of potential, and building for their futures. They choose not to be defined by a single dark moment in their lives. In solidarity with those we serve, we’re taking off the nametag ‘American Refugee Committee’ and becoming Alight.
We’re still the same organization, providing lifesaving services like we have for 40 years – clean water, health care, protection, livelihood services. That doesn’t change. But we’re doing even more, too – with trafficked people and the displaced. And we’ve been joined by other organizations doing incredible work themselves: protecting exceptionally vulnerable LGBTQI refugees and asylum seekers; helping un & under-employed immigrants and refugees in the U.S. meet their full potential; and making sure kids in the Middle East have the champions they need to succeed and thrive. Alight makes room for our partner organizations ORAM, Upwardly Global and Questscope.
