Charlene Balick is a Technical Program Officer for Grameen Foundation based in Seattle, Washington. She has spent considerable time in Haiti working with Fonkoze.
On Thursday, 27 January, my co-worker in the Grameen Technology Center, Scott Everett , organized with some other members of SEAMO (Seattle Microfinance Organization) a benefit to raise funds for Fonkoze. The event was promoted by other Seattle organizations including Seattle Greendrinks, Re-Vision Labs and Seattle Works. I was thrilled to have a chance to be a part of the lineup and share stories and photos of clients I had taken during visits to Fonkoze over the past year and half.
