Dear Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Long Island,
This is part 1 of a 2-part appeal to find more micro-loan sites through RPCV recommendations, find more volunteers to work with us doing virtual community and economic development and to enlist board financial support for our efforts.
If you served in Colombia, Ghana, Guatemala, Kenya, Liberia, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Peru, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, Uganda or Zambia, TCP Global invites you to learn about our virtual community and economic development work in your country. If you served anywhere else, we invite you to connect us to potential new partners.
TCP Global has more than twenty years of experience building zero-overhead, sustainable micro-loan programs and recently passed the $1 million milestone in loans issued. See the attached congratulatory letter from Peace Corps Director, Jody Olsen.
Our team recently expanded to include six evacuees who added new energy to our loan program. We have no paid staff and 100% of donations are distributed as micro-loans with nothing withheld for overhead in the U.S. or abroad.
The National Peace Corps Association serves as the fiscal agent for TCP Global, which is one of its Community Fund partners. The long-term vision is to join forces with other RPCV-led projects to provide not just micro-loans but also improve health care, environmental protection, water and sanitation, electric and internet connectivity and education to improve the quality of life in small and remote communities so that migration will one day be a choice rather than a necessity. The NPCA provides grants and support for RPCV initiatives that may one day join our efforts.
To learn more about TCP Global or to bring a loan program to your PC site, or to learn other ways to get involved, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
