In January 2010, I visited Freedom From Hunger's microfinance with education program in Mali, West Africa. It was inspiring to see the commitment by the women who were able to save and borrow safely and affordably, sometimes for the first time in their lives. By combining savings and lending with education - in this case education related to malaria prevention and other health-related issues - FFH is helping poor women and their families develop tools to strengthen their families' basic financial sustainability. As a board member, I felt moved by the quality and impact of Freedom From Hunger's work.
