Welcomed to the philanthropic scene only four years ago, Vittana (vittana.org) has been called innovative and a “game changer.” It partners with microfinance institutions throughout the developing world to create and support student lending programs. Its mission is to empower young people with the education and training they need to build a life of prosperity and opportunity. Every one of the students featured on Vittana’s website is real. All sponsors have to do is pick one, and then put them through school. Donated money goes directly to the student, who then has between six months and three years to pay back the loan without interest. Incredibly, 99.8 percent of Vittana's partnering students repay their loans in full. Since its launch in 2008, Vittana has loaned nearly $2.5 million to more than 6,000 students in 12 countries around the world. Its vision is a world of opportunity, where educated minds and skillful hands work together to uplift the next generation, breaking the cycle of poverty.
