Kiva Lending Team: University of Queensland (UQ)
We loan because...
No matter how much you suffer, suffering is always subjective. There are people in the world far worse off than you.
"If we value the life of a child more than going to fancy restaurants, the next time we dine out we will know that we could have done something better with our money. If that makes living a morally decent life extremely arduous, well, then that is the way things are. If we don't do it, then we should at least know that we are failing to live a morally decent life — not because it is good to wallow in guilt but because knowing where we should be going is the first step toward heading in that direction."
