The gift that keeps on giving
Updated: Jan 8, 2020
Small gifts make an enormous difference
Let me tell you about the gift from friends of UNA-CC that continues to give.
Every year UNA Center County and its Council of Organizations selects a "Make a Difference" project related to the UN Day Dinner theme. In 2012 our theme was empowering women (see more below).
That year we collected over $2000 in donations for Kiva, an organization that provides microloans to women around the world who are beginning businesses to support their families.
One of the unique features of Kiva is that as loans are repaid they are then repurposed and given to other women entrepreneurs.
As of 2019, when we received our annual update, those donations to UNA-CC and Kiva have provided $14,650 in loans to women in 60 countries!
UNA would, once again, like to thank everyone who contributed! Your gift continues to make a difference in the lives of women around the world.
