Micro lending to build local economies

Judy Haselhoef co-founded an organization in mountainous rural Haiti in 2007. It offered a program for leadership that partnered with the local people to help improve their economy. Her recently released book, GIVE and TAKE: Doing Our Damnedest NOT To Be Another Charity in Haiti, documents the lessons learned from six years and more than 40 projects.

Her presentation addresses one of those programs, micro lending. It will be held in a workshop format so that attendees can participate. Judy, a fellow Rotarian, visits us from the Waukesha Sunrise club.

Eternal Wish Foundation

Many people have heard of the national wish organization for children. However, what if the father, mother, or any individual over eighteen is diagnosed with a terminal illness? The Eternal Wish Foundation, a Milwaukee-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization addresses this need and has granted several wishes in the local area and across the country.

Wishes have included meeting celebrities such as Kenny Chesney, Aaron Rodgers, traveling to New Orleans, publishing a book, arranging a wedding, and several others. As the founder of Eternal Wish Foundation, Tom Chirafisi is honored to tell the organization's story: how it started; some of their wish recipient stories and how receiving a wish experience has extended their lives; and the future of the organization as it continues to grow.
