Philanthropy at its finest

Three months ago, Kushal Chakrabarti co-founded vittana.com. This website soared when The Huffington Post named this website “The Ultimate Game Changer in Philanthropy”. They are a student loan organization that cater to microfinance institutions in third world countries. So far they have made loans totaling $37,000 to 33 students. There are major banks that give loans in these countries but they are typically so expensive that they are out of the reach of most families.

The work that vittana.com is doing is very commendable and a good thing for the people in these countries. It is honorable to help someone get an education so that they can better themselves and make a better life for themselves and family in the future.
