To reach our goal, we focus on eight fields: health, livelihood, water sanitation, hygiene, education, child protection, humanitarian assistance and emergency response. We sponsor Jamila Kanchoro, a young girl in Kenya. We provide access to basic necessities such as clean water, food, education and health care for Jamila. Child sponsorships assist in the hiatus of the poverty cycle by empowering young minds, their families, and communities. In a ‘Thank You’ card, Jamila mentioned her love for science; a passion that we both share. I made it one of my personal goals to raise money for scientific instruments for Jamila to use one day.

This experience has challenged me to not only make a difference in my community but to also impact globally. My involvement in this club has also contributed to my desire of exploring the science and medical field at UBC to aid those in
A program evaluation offers a way to determine if adjustments are needed to improve upon the project in order for it to remain successful. Furthermore, the project evaluation team will analyze and measure each component of the outcome, input, and process in order to clarify the program’s objectives and goals. Thus creating a framework of evaluation methods and questions in addition to setting up a timeline for the evaluation activities will assist in the evaluation (CDC, 2011; HRSA, n.d.; McGonigle & Mastrian, 2015). The goal of outcome measures is to describe the overall performance of the process; therefore, outcome measurement will determine the program cost-effectiveness, attribution, and efficiency (CDC, 2012; HRSA, n.d.; McGonigle & Mastrian, 2015). There will be additional evaluation concerning the input measures, which are the resources that were put into the process. Lastly, the appraisal of process measures will provide data regarding the performance each course of action involved in the implantation of the project (HRSA, n.d.). After a thorough evaluation of the project, recommendations and the dissemination of results will be prepared and
By observing a thorough interview of many borrowers who are already in a state of wage garnishment or tax offset, it dawns upon us that they don’t receive adequate notice or instructions on their options to get out of default. Such revelations can often be quite complex to deal with esp. when it comes to the audacious in lax front-end lending policies for borrowers with as many as 25 or more individual loans serviced by multiple loan servicers with different statements, due dates, and phone numbers.
Kiva is an organization that loans to people who need money for everyday struggles that the majority of us in our small town don’t face.

That's the thing, with Kiva all the borrowers only have to pay back the money over a span of time every month for what we hope is for a lifetime of happiness.

The agreed objectives of the team, can be monitored by the use of agreed monitoring indicators. In my work setting, monitoring forms have been designed to collect information on daily activities and tasks that have been performed by service users with staff support. Some of the monitoring forms also indicate the time and type of task that has been performed by staff on daily shifts, weekly, or monthly allocated tasks.

Seven years ago, Jessica Jackley heard a speech by Grameen Bank founder Muhammad Yunus, an economist from Bangladesh who had developed the idea of microcredit: loans offered to entrepreneurs too poor to qualify for traditional bank loans.
