Whole Planet Foundation Partners with Hope for Haiti in Power Your Purpose Virtual 5K
Pivoting from a physical 5K Run in Austin, Texas to an online event due to COVID-19 has meant partners like Hope for Haiti are joining Whole Planet Foundation from a safe distance to alleviate poverty through microcredit around the globe. On average, microcredit loans are less than $200 and enable low-income entrepreneurs, mostly women, to start or develop their own small businesses to support their families. For the past 5 years, Hope for Haiti has been investing in Haitian economy by making nearly $1 million in grants and loans to support Haitian entrepreneurs and social businesses.
Join 1,100+ participants by signing up for Whole Planet Foundation’s Power Your Purpose Virtual 5K to run, walk, bike or move for microcredit in any way that suits you. 100% of registration fees for this online event will go to fund microlending programs through Whole Planet Foundation. Participants will enjoy various online discount codes from event partners and get to take a virtual trip to Haiti to see Hope for Haiti's work in healthcare and economic opportunity.
With experience running poverty alleviation programs in Haiti since 1989, Hope for Haiti has emerged as one of the most trusted non-profit organizations working to improve the quality of life for the Haitian people, particularly children, in southern Haiti. The organization’s team and network of partners provide people with better access to education, healthcare, water, and economic development opportunities.
