Kiva Lending Team: Long Leaders
We loan because...
We loan because we know that all of us have gotten where we are through the labors, sacrifices, and generosity of others. We want to help others as we have been helped. We believe that from those to whom much has been given, much is expected.
We loan because teachers care about all children in the world, not just the ones in our school. We believe it is important to show students how one act of kindness can be like a pebble in a pond and how they too can do something small that has a big impact.
We loan because supporting free enterprise and a market economy will give people the help they need without giving a handout. We believe that we can provide hope and help elevate people around the world out of poverty. We believe we can help people that, because of the circumstance of their birth, have the potential but just need the opportunity.
We loan so that we can do our part to make our community, our city, our state, our country, our continent, our hemisphere, and our world better. We believe that without action, our commitment to the mission of “developing inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect” are just words.
We are the faculty and staff of an International Baccaluareate Middle Years Programme candidate school in Dallas, Texas, USA.
We serve 1,240 future global leaders in 6th - 8th grades.
