KIVA Project - Fall 2016
During the last several weeks, we have been learning about extreme poverty in Guatemala, talking about wealth & poverty, and how micro-finance is helping families especially in rural areas. We watched the documentary Living on One Dollar (@LivingonOne) & we have seen how micro-finance organizations like Kiva are helping people living in poverty in rural Guatemala.
About the Kiva Project:
To end this unit, students chose a borrower from Kiva to lend to. Their job is to tell their story and how micro-finance is helping this person. This is the 4th year doing the KIVA Project with my Spanish III class; one of my favorite projects of the year!
Please watch the videos and vote for your favorite. You may decide the criteria for what makes it your favorite!
(Winner gets an extra $25 to lend to a borrower on KIVA.)
Our class participated in the #30HourFamine which helps students identify with the hungry children we are learning about — and learn about hunger in a way they’ll never forget.
