Last Service Learning

This last service learning was obviously our most successful. We went to two businesses during work hours and presented to them what Kiva was and how they could join in.

The reason this service learning was our most successful was because we received a $5000 donation to lend to entrepreneurs through Kiva. This donation will allow us to fully fund entrepreneurs instead of having multiple people donate to the same person.

Thanks a ton for the donation.

February Service Learning Date

Surf's Up! This time we went to the beach with our dogs (and a tortoise?). Surprisingly, the beach was packed with people walking their dogs and getting some Wednesday morning exercise. The tortoise and our dogs were able to garner quite the crowd and people were more than willing to listen to us as we explained Kiva to all of them. I am quite sure that we were able to make quite a few more Kiva lenders today!

January Service Learning Date

This Service Learning, we essentially had a dress rehearsal in the Sage Hill community. In the Quad, we set up three separate tables in which we worked on getting Kiva out to as many Sage Hill faculty members and students as we could. It was a relatively successful day seeing as we talked to quite a few faculty members for an extended period of time. Hopefully we will have some future Kiva lenders out of them!
