<h1>Month: September 2012
One of the organizations I support is Kiva.org. It is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. I came across an application they developed to visually show the connections between lenders and borrowers. The video is an animation that shows the development of the organization from their beginnings in 2005 with 7 lenders to today, a community of more than 620,000 lenders funding more than 615,000 entrepreneurs , students, and other microfinance borrowers from around the world. Watch the very interesting 4-minute video. I started thinking... as part of our own Yoga Sadhana, if we were to inventory the impact of our thoughts, words and actions and develop our own ballistic animation... what would it look like?
