More about the Whole Planet Foundation:
The Whole Planet Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market. It provides small loans (usually $200 or less) to hard-working people, mostly women, who want to launch their very own businesses. This allows people in worse-off parts of the world, to provide for their families long-term and make a living in an honest and dignified way.
WPF focuses efforts on the villages and rural communities that supply their stores with products such as tropical fruit, vegetables, tea, and coffee. Empowering the the poor in these communities will enable them to escape the vicious cycle of poverty by allowing them to use their own energy and creativity to help themselves.
The 2010 Calendar features inspiring entrepreneurs from Peru, Bolivia, India, Haiti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Guatemala, Thailand, Nepal, Indonesia, the United States and East Timor. Get inspired even more with these borrower-inspired recipes and see for yourself! Coconut Bread and authentic Rice and Beans are just some of the delicious dishes to try.
So the next time you are at Whole Foods, remember to pick up your copy of this calendar – it will be a daily reminder of the ways that your lifestyle choices are sprouting prosperity all over the world.
