The Green Children

The Green Children is a young band of musicians inspired by Professor Muhammad Yunus. After visiting Bangladesh and India to learn more about microcredit, The Green Children were incredibly inspired by the borrowers they met with. From its website:
Milla Sunde and Tom Bevan established The Green Children Foundation to support microcredit, education and healthcare. Last year, The Green Children shot a music video in Bangladesh to celebrate the work of Professor Muhammad Yunus, the father of microcredit and founder of The Grameen Bank.

The Green Children have reached the target of $500,000 which will go towards the first dedicated eye hospital in rural Bangladesh.

They told Professor Yunus the good news during his recent visit to California. The hospital is due to be completed in March next year and will serve 50,000 people a year, 10,000 of which will receive the vital cataracts operation and escape from a life of blindness!
Please support them.
