"Like many people I wore a white bracelet for the Make Poverty History campaign, however, I was frustrated and wanted to do more than simply wear a band. I was very interested when I heard about Five Talents as it addresses 3 key issues that are important to me.
(1) Microfinance is wealth creating, (2) the money goes directly where it is needed most, and (3) it embraces the important Christian principles of helping the meek and the poor. It is a pleasure to be part of this fast-growing charity and using my talents to lend 'talents' to the active poor. I would highly recommend anyone interested to go on one of the 5T "Business as mission" trips. I went on one to Uganda - we are changing peoples lives."
