This fall I will be traveling to India to do volunteer work and see first hand the impact that Whole Planet Foundation has in developing countries.Whole Planet Foundation extends microcredit loans in developing nations, with a focus on empowering women. 

Whole Planet Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market. We provide grants to microfinance institutions in Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Middle East, who in turn develop and offer microenterprise loan programs, training and other financial services to the self-employed poor.

Whole Planet Foundation was born out of Whole Foods Market’s desire to give something back to those who have helped us succeed, while focusing on the persistent problem of world poverty and hunger. The foundation was formed with the entrepreneurial spirit of Whole Foods Market in partnership with Professor Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank, co-recipients of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

357 Team Members have volunteered in Costa Rica, Ghana, Guatemala, Peru, India, Brazil, Kenya and the United States since 2007!

They met hundreds of microcredit clients, built 50 carbon-efficient stoves, provided 100,000+ meals to impoverished children, taught 350,000 classroom hours, protected sea turtle habitat, built a playground for a children’s home and a poultry coop for a village, gave children access to fresh clean water for drinking and bathing and their first ever shower as well as building a dining hall, kitchen and kitchen garden for the children, built a goat house and a bakery for a community as income generating opportunities, built water tanks in the high desert, refurbished community buildings and docks and provided water filtrations systems and training on those systems to 25 families on the Amazon, built a computer lab for a girls’ school in Ghana, learned about cashews, coffee, bananas, açaí, brownies, The Blessing Basket Project, tropical fruit and vegetables, went on safari on the Maasai Mara, visited Machu Picchu, Iguassu Falls and the Empire State Building and experienced trips of a lifetime!

This is a volunteer trip through Whole Planet Foundation, the charitable arm of Whole Foods Market. I am responsible for covering my travel, immunizations, and visas. My time is also donated and I will be in India for two weeks. Whole Planet Foundation is covering my food and lodging while in India. I am reaching out for help in supporting me on this mission and to defray travel costs and my time away from work. 

Please check out the WPF website for more information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am excited to help cultivate real change in the world. Thank you in advance!

Much love,
