Danny said "Now I'm gonna just pass their contact information to you." last week.
Recently, Grameen U has been looking for a Campus Representative from University of Washington and had a contact with him. Grameen U is one of the projects run by Grameen America, aming to enhance college students' activities to promote their philosophy.
says the representative of each universities coordinates, encourages, and joins by him/herself to form students' groups of 5 people. Each group does whatever they want in order to spread the word of Grameen America. There will be some financial and opportunity supports by their headquarter, I guess.
By the way, actually it is the most important thing that Grameen America is a microfinance organization working for the American poor as you could tell from the name. It uses the idea of Grameen Bank (a big microfinance company in Bangladesh, founded by Muhammad Yunus, the "inventor" of microfinance and the Nobel Peace Prize Winner in 2006). What is attractive about this organization is that they have Muhammad Yunus himself at their Board
So now, I will have the contact information of them. How's that!?
I'm always wanting to take initiative in a team. And this opportunity allows me to represent the University of Washington to the big name, Grameen America.
But the thing is that I'm Japanese.
How can I take a leadership and motivate myself to aid American population more than American students do?? I'm living here in the US just temporarily.
But this is obviously a good chance.
