Before I was a mom I was a teacher. As a result, my teacher personality and my mom personality are one. My teaching philosophy is based on social justice and I hope to instill those same values in my son. As he gets older I will teach him kindness, fairness, the difference between right and wrong and that the world has injustices we can’t accept. One of the ways I try to live this in my life is through Kiva. For those of you unfamiliar with Kiva, it is a ‘non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.’ It’s goal is to connect people like you and I with others around the world. With a minimum loan of $25 I have been offering people around the world opportunity. Opportunity to start a business by buying animals and other livestock, to fix their motorcycle so they can get to work, to repair their shop after a disaster, pay for medical care, and to expand their business and hire other employees. For this reason I am grateful that Kiva has given me an opportunity to live my philosophy of social justice.
If you are interested in learning more about Kiva take a look at this video. It does a great job explaining how Kiva helps us connect with people around the world.
