I’m a great believer in empowering people who want to improve themselves but who just need a helping hand to do so. My friend Jane told me about Kiva, a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.
All you need to do is lend a minimum of $25 dollars to your chosen individual and they pay it back to you in monthly instalments. You can then either take the money back, or as I have done, re-lend it to someone else. I’m now helping my 25th entrepreneur and have loaned to people across the globe – Peru, Ecuador, Philippines, Uganda, El Salvador, Ghana, Mongolia……the list goes on.
Help those who just need a helping hand, go to www.kiva.org to find out how you can give people who want to work the chance to make a better life for themselves.

What more can I say about the delightful Mr Kershaw – Stephen Fry has said it all! Andy’s a great friend of the gallery so check out his website www.andykershaw.co.uk and I urge you to buy his autobiography - a highly recommended read.
“Andy Kershaw has led an extraordinary life. His unrivalled role in bringing World Music to the ears of the west is just part of the story of this man whose zest for life, music, people, experience and travel made him the finest British broadcaster bar none. That his life has had its ups and downs is to say that the Alps have snowy peaks, but throughout this dizzyingly paced and often wildly hilarious book he brings alive his matchless career, and the cultural life of a Britain that seems to be vanishing. Forget Media Studies and a life of student debt: read NO OFF SWITCH and learn what it is to be a real broadcast journalist, a real achiever. A real someone.” — Stephen Fry
