Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 23, 2010
The radio show hosted by Megan Schiebe at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/megan-schiebe articulates an array of international and local volunteer opportunities available for volunteers by inviting representatives from global and local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) to discuss their upcoming volunteer needs on radio such as volunteering with an orphanage in Kenya as well as how to connect and network with potential fundraisers, etc.
Whole Planet Foundation, http://www.wholeplanetfoundation.org through their impressive microcredit programs, is enabling poor communities worldwide to take ownership of their situation by issuing microcredit loans. These loans are being offered to individuals such as women living in rural Nicaragua tirelessly working at succeeding at their home-based sewing business selling school uniforms to the surrounding communities, to women making and selling tortillas at the back of their mud hut to help sustain their families’ incomes. The loans are typically less than $200 each; however, the impact is life-changing and creates groundbreaking opportunities for some of the most impoverished women struggling to place a meal on the table.
