KF7 Training Day 1

This morning, twenty-eight Kiva Fellow Trainees arrived at the Kiva office. They will be trained throughout the week to prepare for placement with one of our Kiva Field Partners. This group will be serving as the seventh class of Kiva Fellows (KF7). The new class will be heading to countries that include: Lebanon, Uganda, Vietnam, Mali, Guatemala, Cameroon, Tajikistan, and many others. To learn about what current Kiva Fellows are doing check out the KF blog.

For those who don't know, Kiva Fellows are high impact volunteers who work with Kiva Field Partners for a minimum of 10 weeks (some as long as 1 year!) to strengthen the partnership in a variety of ways. Interested in applying? The deadline to apply for KF8 is February 1st.
