WOCCU offering CUs opportunities in Kenya
MADISON, Wis. (9/7/11)--Credit unions can work alongside field personnel during the World Council of Credit Unions' (WOCCU) engagement program, Oct. 30-Nov. 6 in Kenya. The program provides credit union leaders with hands-on opportunity to become directly involved with credit unions internationally.
The World Council of Credit Union (WOCCU) engagement program will be held Oct. 30-Nov. 6 in Kenya. Engagement program participant Patricia Wesenberg, president/CEO of Central City CU in Marshfield, Wis., attends to a young child. (Photo provided by World Council of Credit Unions).
The deadline for registration is Sept. 30. During the trip to Kenya, located in East Africa, participants will help develop savings and credit products tailored for the rural poor and see how small credit unions are reaching the unbanked through a new technology that WOCCU developed. During the trip, participants will also volunteer at Busia Compassionate Centre, a local orphanage. The engagement program is offered through the Global Women’s Leadership Network; however, both men and women alike are eligible to participate. Participants do not need to be members of the network. Participation is limited.
