TBD: Do More Good

tbd

If you believe in the power of good, you may enjoy TBD – a newsletter that, much like Good Magazine, shares positive news about our world. A welcome change from the doom and gloom most newspapers bring, for sure. One of the interesting companies I learnt about from TBD is Vittana, which is a sort of Kiva for education, that allows people who are so inclined to lend money to contribute towards the education of people who need financial aid in developing countries. Once the beneficiaries have a job and income, loans are paid back in full. It’s a simple enough idea that amazingly enough hasn’t been put into practice before. The Grameen Bank showed us that microfinance can work, and Vittana, hopefully, will show that it can work for education.
