Kiva is a website that connects individuals and groups in need of financial assistance (often from less developed countries) with individuals and groups who are able offer loans. This year the grade and level sixes have banded together to establish a Tall Pines Kiva Club; a team of students keen on making an impact in the lives of others by raising money and then offering loans to those in need.
We’re just getting started! Today our grade 6/level 6 Kiva Club Skyped with Mr. Ferriter’s Kiva Club in North Carolina (an established group who has made hundreds of loans to people all over the world!). Our group asked many questions which were all capably answered by Mr. Ferriter’s student team. It was an informative experience, and our group is excited to make our first loan!
