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.
Just recently our Rotary partner in Nepal, the Rotary Club of Mahabouddha distributed micro credit loans to people who were effected by the 2015 earthquake in Boharatar, Chapagou in Lalitpur as well as clients at various location of Rasuwa and Kathmandu. This was a special grant provided by the #Rotary International under the micro credit grant for $91,000.
