Campaign: Whole Planet

Whole Planet Foundation is proud to salute Organic India for renewing its commitment to global poverty alleviation and joining our annual $50,000 giving level.  Organic India’s generosity of  $160,708 to date is funding approximately 1,800 microloans to create 9,220 opportunities for microentrepreneurs and their family members to live a better life through microcredit.  Microloans are small loans – the current average first loan size supported by Whole Planet Foundation is $182 – with no formal collateral or contract, provided to microentrepreneurs to create or grow a home-based business for the opportunity to pull themselves and their families out of poverty. 

Whole Planet Foundation’s global impact has reached the world’s poorest people – mostly women – in the United States and 70 other countries thanks to supplier donors like Organic India who have collectively contributed more than $10 million for poverty alleviation.   

Watch the video featuring Amy Keller, Director of Education and Training, to learn about Organic India's reasons for supporting Whole Planet Foundation.  Amy shares "Organic India knows that when you empower women, you empower community.  As an integral part of its company operations, Organic India invests in women through employment opportunities, fair wages, access to healthcare, educational programming and development opportunities.”  Learn about Organic India’s vision, mission, service, and commitment standards here.
