Lumana, a non-profit organization based out of Seattle, reduces poverty and increase opportunity for individuals in rural Africa through microfinance, savings services, and business education. Currently focusing on the Volta Region of Ghana, Lumana acts as a partner when facilitating healthy, prosperous and economically resilient communities.

Lumana’s fellows program gives volunteers the opportunity to make a difference when aiding in current and future program development. US Fellows offer integral office and fundraising support at Lumana’s Seattle headquarters while International Fellows work on the ground in Ghana expanding their microfinance operations.

Michael shares with us more about ways to get involved with Lumana, what makes their fellow’s program unique and the impact their volunteers have.
