Business as a Calling

My wife and I have continued to get more involved in giving to microfinance efforts. It has been a joy for us to give to something that is self sustaining and has a residual effect far beyond an initial gift.

Partners WorldWide is passionate about sustainable solutions to poverty. They have grown to serve in over 20 developing countries worldwide and established an international network of business and professional people dedicated to creating jobs, ending the cycle of poverty and transforming communities. These efforts have resulted in the creation of 1,656 jobs and the retention of 16,812 jobs in 2008.

Recently they added a video to their website that captures the essence of microfinance and how business can be a sustainable tool for ministry. Visit their website (http://www.partnersworldwide.org/) or check it out here:
