Kiva our team is A.C.T. 4 Change 

Recently the youth group at Luther Memorial Lutheran Church created a team on the Kiva web site.  You may find it interesting to watch this short video  on this link. About Kiva a brief video 

Kiva is  a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Learn more about how it works.

Since Kiva was founded in 2005:

  • 1,229,720 Kiva lenders
  • $628,641,300in loans
  • 98.82% repayment rate

We work with:

  • 285 Field Partners
  • 450 volunteers around the world
  • 80 different countries

The youth of the church will be the managers of our team.  They will be making loans to the following countries:

Papua New Guinea because the Virginia Synod is a sister synod to the Islands District of Papua New Guinea.

The Ukraine because this country has vast needs.

Tanzania becasue of our relationship with students in this country through the Godparent program established in the Virginia Synod.

Guatamala because we want to support our sisters and brothers in South America. 

Updates will be posted about our activities as we make loans.  Please join us in supporting our team-A.C.T. 4 Change.
