The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
PEER Servants' mission is to transform lives by partnering for economic empowerment and renewal.
PEER Servants partners with microfinance institutions in the developing world, providing business services, technical and strategic planning assistance, and some funding. The organizations in each country provide small loans and training to low-income clients seeking to start or expand small businesses. Through microfinance, individuals, families, and even communities are offered an opportunity to break out of systemic poverty. A faith-based organization, we promote not just economic growth but also personal growth and transformed lives.
PEER Servants is staffed mainly by volunteers--professionals in business, communications, information technology, management consulting, marketing, education, development, etc.--that donate time and expertise to support the organization's vision and mission.
