Just a quick follow up to my post about Vittana. I was thrilled to co host the March 8th (International Women’s Day) Twitter party in support of their goal of raising funds for the education of 100 women.
They did it!
From their press release:
Vittana, the non-profit organization that has pioneered online, person-to-person micro-lending to give students from developing countries a resource for student loans, announces that its March 2012 International Women’s Day Campaign helped empower 109 female students with loans from 584 lenders from around the globe.
