Be The Change Event in KC

A few times I have blogged about the need for all of us to be the change we wish to see in the world.  My Dad has instilled this belief structure in all of us with his micro loan program, and in the 8 schools he has built in the last few years.  My youngest brother took that belief structure and this year became the Director of Be The Change Volunteers - this year he is doing a school build project in Kenya this summer and Papua New Guinea. 

The Govro's have funded the soccer field in Kenya but Grant still needs to raise funds for the school projects.  (It would be a great soccer field but really pointless without the school :-)

So do you want to be a part of it?  Do you want to be the change?  Come and learn more on Monday May 21st from 6pm-8:15pm at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Gallery (it's by Jack Stack in Crossroads) this is a free event to drive awareness about BTCV but the goal is to raise money for these school projects!

Please RSVP to Stephanie -

If you just wan to give but can't come - that works too :-) BCTV can provide you with a tax receipt.


  1. Your dad started the micro loan program? Is this the same program we see overseas with micro loans, especially to women in countries like India and Bangladesh? I watched a fascinating documentary on this a while back. Kudos to the Govro family! Wish I lived in the area. Sounds like a good event. Hope it goes well!

  2. Hi Miranda - yes Dad started a micro loan program back when I was in college and it funds chicken farms, a few stores, and some other businesses. He also builds schools - because he believes that education is the key to sustainable growth. His microloans are in India - in an area called Siliguri. This is his website thanks for commenting - good to hear from you.


Thanks for Posting on Clinical Transformation!
