A little earlier this week I made another loan through Kiva as part of the Genealogists for Families Team. The loan was to a lady in Kenya, so you may well be asking what this has to do with my A-Z Challenge theme of Australia.
“We care about families (past, present and future)”
was started by an Australian who continued the legacy of her late father. What a wonderful way to honour a loved one, by sharing their values. Over time I have supported others using my family members birthday’s, Christmas and anniversaries as a commemoration. A rather wonderful way of linking past with present and hopefully future.
My first loan was made in honour of my late Grandmother’s birthday. The loan to an individual in Sierra Leone,which is where my Grandfather spent half of his Second World War service.
The Genealogists for Families Team is exactly that, a team of enthused genealogists and their friends and family. You can read about the Team HERE. The team has members across the globe, helping people across the globe, but it all started down under!
