Founded on a novel idea that education and financial support, not charity, provides the surest way out of poverty for poor families we have established the “Legacy of Hope – Micro Credit Project” to provide destitute women with a micro-credit loans. As a result, these women have gained knowledge and a source of income for themselves and their families. This program has helped more than 2500 women in Nepal to empower them to take control of their lives, improve their family’s standard of living and provide what every mother wants for her children — hope for a brighter future through better nutrition, health care and, most importantly education.
During our recent Humanitarian mission we allocated $100,000 funds to various NGO’s to distribute to earthquake effected areas. With this program we hope to provide loans to more than 300 people a year.
