October is Economic and Community Development Month

Posted on Oct 02, 2017
     Economic and Community Development is one of Rotary’s Areas of Focus.  Rotary supports investments in people to create measurable and enduring economic improvement in their lives and communities.  This includes:
-Building the capacity of entrepreneurs, community leaders, local organizations, and community networks to support economic development in impoverished communities.
-Developing opportunities for productive work.
-Reducing poverty in underserved communities.
-Supporting studies for career-minded professionals related to economic and community development.
 
Our KIVA project supports, in part, this Area of Focus by funding creative people’s projects in faraway places through micro loans. If you want to know more about this fascinating opportunity, check out www.kiva.org.
