USAID MicroLINKS: Race4Change

Race4Change - Racing for the End of Poverty

Date Posted: October 30, 2009
A team consisting of Dr. Steven Funk and Jean-Louis Juchalt will participate in the 2009 East African Safari Rally from November 22 - December 1, 2009 to bring attention to the Africa-Middle East Regional Microcredit Summit to be held April 7-10, 2010 in Nairobi, Kenya.  They also aim to bring support to Jamii Bora Trust and the Microcredit Summit Campaign. The Race4Change website allows participants to register as co-drivers, build pit crew teams and raise funds for the cause. The individual co-driver garnering the greatest number of points in their Race4Change involvement will be rewarded with two round trip airfares to Kenya in April of 2010 to coincide with the 2010 Microcredit Summit in Africa. The prize winner will also be granted hotel accommodations, two fully paid VIP registrations to the Summit, and an up close and personal tour of Jamii Bora. More prizes will be announced in coming days for leading co-drivers and a special award for the winning pit crew.  Visit the Race4Change website to learn more about this race for the end of poverty.
