Education and interest free loans to poor Traders
Organized by: Joga Rai
I am a teacher and there is so much we can do to raise people from the depths of poverty and to alleviate their pangs. One is to give people an education from the very basic up to degree level. The other is to give small returnable interest free loans to poor farmers and traders to expand their businesses. I would like to start in India and then move to other countries which will be a huge task. I went to India last December 2015 and was able to help a few people with my own money but I would like to do this more full time. My ethos is if we can help the poor to stand up then they will be able to help others to stand up too. There are very few people who will make this a career to help the poor but I have decided to do this with your support. If we can teach people to read and write they in turn can be trained to teach others. If we can teach individuals to even a higher standard of education they in turn could do the same. Farmers and small traders who are struggling need only a small loan to be freed from the shackles of being restricted. This loan will be returnable after a set amount of time and then re-used to help some one else. I am able to find genuine honest individuals who will benefit from this arrangement. I realise there are people who do not want to work and they will be encouraged to work in order to benefit from this arrangement. Any donations will not be just hand outs but this money will be re-used even when anyone is raised from poverty through education will be asked and encouraged to help others and if they have secured employment they will be encouraged to make a donation as to whatever they can afford whether it be a one off or regular. Please can you help so I can spend my time helping people and as a result something enormous may result.
