First Micro-Loan from NCTT-Cor-SHU-team to a KIVA-borrower

Thanks to someone who sent us a donation for a Micro-credit loan on Kiva, we funded a loan to a farmer in San Diego, CA. We have become a member on Kiva in order to help realize our Ten Core Objectives for Progress and Social Transformation. We plan to form a group for those of you to join us in creating a better world.

We chose to lend our first microloan to Hernan becaus of his story here

“We always wanted to be close to nature, raise our kids in nature, and be self-sufficient through growing our own food,” shared Hernan. “It’s empowering to be able to produce something and provide for others, instead of consuming without participation.”


If you want to join us and help transform society to one where equality, human values, human dignity are our focus, please feel invited by NCTT-Cor-SHU to join Kiva by clicking this link. You can also donate to our Micro-loan Fund and we will be able to loan to more borrowers worldwide via Kiva.

Yes on Prop. 37 (California)

As a think tank that wrote the proposal for the “Sustainable Agricultural Commune,” we support Prop 37 Labeling of genetically modified food (GM), so please Vote Yes on Prop. 37 if you are in California and if you are voting tomorrow. 

In more than 60 countries worldwide the labeling has already been made into law. It is time Californians know what goes into the food they buy. It will save your health and also the natural environment.

Please check: www.carighttoknow.org especially this facts-page where all is explained.

[added on Nov 6th: Also, how are farm workers effected? Read this article in Nation of Change. ]

Read this article from Nature from 2003 about GM labeling in the EU (this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winners):
