As many of you know I have been serving as the Executive Director of CREED – the Center of Resources for Economic Education and Development these past several years. This year we have done some exciting things with the help of our board and many of you.
We have shipped over 1000 humanitarian school kits to children in need so they can continue their education in Haiti and Belize, and we are preparing a shipment to Uganda. We helped start a micro business in Uganda at an orphanage – we provided the funds to start a pultry business, we helped build a chicken coop stocked with baby chicks and feed. This chicken coop, which will hold 500 chickens, will help provide enough money in the future to send the 27 children to school as well as help them have more food to eat. We are starting a micro-business lending project in Belize which will provide small dollar loans to several micro business owners, after approval of the borrower’s business plan and education training.
We now have a very unique opportunity: Just Give, a non-profit company, which offers non-profits such as CREED and thousands of other non-profits an easy way to donate on line, is offering a matching gift to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. For each donation of at least $10.00 they will send us an additional $10.00. This offer is only for donation made up to October 20th.
A school kit cost $10.00. So for every ten dollars donated we can send two children to school instead of one! The micro business loans will be about $400-$500 each; we are working towards four loans per month in the next 12 months.
Please make your donation by following the following link and then filling in the boxes with the following information as shown below:
